Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, now Trump's energy secretary, also sent about 1,000 Guard members to the border in 2014 in response to a surge in the number of unaccompanied immigrant children crossing the Rio Grande, the river that separates the US and Mexico in the state.

Trump said last week that he wanted 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members deployed to the border.

Critics have questioned whether the Guard deployments are necessary or are taking away dollars that the Pentagon has said is needed to fix an urgent readiness crisis.

Santa Cruz Sheriff Tony Estrada, whose jurisdiction includes a stretch of the U.S. -Mexico border, told KTAR News 92.3 FM's Mac and Gaydos last week that he would rather see more people guarding the three ports of entry.

"This mission is about providing manpower and resources to support federal, state, county, tribal and local law enforcement agencies in stopping the flow of criminals, narcotics, weapons and ammunition trafficked in the state", the statement said.

While Trump frequently talks tough on border security, he is not the first president to send in National Guard troops to hold the line.

If the administration plans to station troops at all nine sectors of the border, however, that number could grow-and it is still unclear how long the Trump administration plans to keep troops there. He said Monday that Trump's call is still under review. "Remember, we're going in in support roles", he said.


"So if we want to fill in the other third with a wall, I would welcome that", he said.

Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat, is a vocal critic of Trump, and has refused to deploy the National Guard before, in 2014. The caravan of largely Central American migrants never meant to reach the USA border, according to organizer Irineo Mujica. About 250 troops now are near the border. Texas announced Monday it will send at least 1,000 troops there.

Arizona's governor sent 225 troops to the border Monday, with an additional 113 to follow Tuesday.

The soldiers were deployed to the Yuma and Tucson sectors of U.S. Customs and Border Protection on 31-day orders, but the governor's office said those orders "can be extended once the mission is further established and roles are more defined".

Walker sent a letter Monday to Democratic U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan voicing his support for what he called Trump's "aggressive actions to secure our nation's southern border".

Apprehensions are nonetheless correctly beneath their historic traits all through the phrases of former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, every of whom moreover deployed the Guard to the border.
