Governor Offers to Send Troops to Border

  • Top News: Texas, Arizona, New Mexico pledge a complete bunch of Nationwide Guard troops for US-Mexico border

"The only future possible for our region is the future built with bridges of trust and shared development, not with walls of indignity and violence", said the statement signed by the bishops of 16 northern Mexican dioceses and the conference's six-member presidential council.

Gov. Jerry Brown agreed on Wednesday to expand the California National Guard's efforts on crime and drug issues that cross the state's border with Mexico, but insisted troops would not be used to enforce immigration directives from President Trump.

"But let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission", Brown wrote. For what it would cost the Guard to make just TWO arrests at the border, we could give a homeless veteran permanent housing for an entire year. In a press launch, the Guard talked about the troops will help frequent laws enforcement stem "the motion of trafficked people, criminals, narcotics, weapons, and ammunition trafficked inside the state".

Until Wednesday, California was the only border state that hadn't responded to Trump's request.

The California Guard members may be deployed at the border, the coast and elsewhere statewide, Brown said. Democrats say a physical wall will not help the issue of illegal immigrants crossing into the US, while Republicans say it's crucial for security.

Abbott said on "Fox & Friends" that the decision will have a meaningful impact on border security, and that the proof can be seen by similar actions taken by former Presidents Bush and Obama. He said most of the southwest border sectors will receive National Guard support.

Meanwhile two of the victims, a 32-year-old woman and a 27-year-old woman were released from San Francisco General Hospital . They said a check of her license turned up the missing person's report, and they contacted sheriffs in San Diego.

The only border state to holdout on troops is California.

It's unclear what operations or missions troops will perform along the border that might require them to carry weapons.

Other border states are also deploying National Guard troops.

Despite Trump's repeated warnings about rampant illegal immigration, the number of people apprehended crossing the border - generally considered a roughly accurate gauge of illegal crossings - has fallen sharply in recent years and is now at the lowest ebb since 1971, about one-fifth the level of the late 1990s, according to Border Patrol data.

"America has always been a melting pot which is good but I think protection, government and taxes is important".
