Bishops on both sides of Mexico border criticise troop deployment

3 States Agree to Deploy National Guard to Border as Others Stall or Refuse

Governor Henry McMaster is offering to send troops to the Texas-Mexico border after President Trump's recent announcement.

Trump said last week he wants to send 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members to the border, issuing a proclamation citing "the lawlessness that continues at our southern border".

Gonzalez went on to say he was disappointed with Defense Secretary James Mattis" decision to send the troops to the region under a "false pretense", and welcomed "reasonable and responsible' measures to secure the border.

A 37 percent increase in illegal border crossings in March brought more than 50,000 immigrants into the United States, which was triple the number of reported illegal border crossings in the same period past 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".

California remains the lone holdout and has not committed any troops to the border since Trump's announcement last week. "Illinois has not been requested to send troops".

The Texas National Guard had said Friday that 250 of its members would be deployed to the border within three days as part of President Donald Trump's plan to fight illegal immigration with up to 4,000 National Guard members.

Congress say donations, contributions are their main sources of income
The ruling BJP and the main opposition Congress, have delayed submitting their audit reports by an average of nearly 6 months. The Indian National Congress's income was a distant second at Rs 225.36 crore which accounts for 14.4% of the total income.

But an 18-year-old American was killed by a Marine near the US border in 1997, an incident that led to a temporary suspension of troop patrols near the border. The agency also has said it needs more money and more agents. Only Border Patrol agents and other law-enforcement officers may apprehend drug runners and people attempting to enter the USA illegally.

In California, Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said Monday that state officials are still reviewing Trump's troop request.

His office says guard members will provide air, reconnaissance, operational and logistical support to border patrol agents.

"I don't think this is a partisan issue or an identity issue", he said.

No details were immediately announced on what the Arizona troops would do at the border.

"This is going to be a virtual and personnel wall to make sure that the country is going to be more secure at this time", he added.
