South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, provided to ship members of his state's Guard as correctly.

So how will we know if having hundreds of members of the National Guard down at the border is actually making a difference?

Abbott said troops along the border could be "in this for the long haul". The Texas National Guard planning teams are being deployed to five sectors along the Texas-Mexico border.

The Republican Ducey in a tweet Monday claimed the majority of the state's Guard members will be deployed on Tuesday.

The measure was announced by Bush in May 2006 as an "immediate step to support [U.S. Customs and Border Protection's] efforts", and saw National Guard officers "assist with surveillance, installing fences and vehicle barriers, as well as provide training", according to the CBP's website. 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".

The White House said that President Donald Trump last week was briefed on his administration's immigration strategy, including the mobilization of the National Guard.

They are also expected to stay clear of face to face law enforcement to free more border patrol agents for work in the field.

Texas also has said National Guard members will be sent by that it to the edge. Certainly, Brown doesn't lose points among her core supporters when she takes any kind of stand against Trump. He said Monday that Trump's call is still under review.

The Mexican Foreign Ministry has said it was assured by Nielsen that guardsmen would not be armed and would not be making arrests but would be acting in support roles only. Trump said the move was needed to help secure the border. The governor met with New Mexico National Guard leaders over the weekend to determine deployment plans and duty assignments, The Washington Post reported.

Grijalva said deploying troops send the wrong message to Mexico and to America.

"Arizona National Guard personnel will not be used in an enforcement role and will not have any law enforcement powers", he said.

Mr Trump has said he wants to use the military at the border until progress is made on his proposed border wall, which has mostly stalled in Congress. Djibouti flights resume after crashes Haley: Russian hands "covered in blood" from Syria attack MORE followed that up by issuing a memo Friday night that authorized up to 4,000 National Guard troops to support the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) border security mission.
