Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen, who announced the deployment Wednesday, didn't offer details about how the National Guard would be used along the border, but said they would serve in a similar capacity as they did when previous administrations deployed troops to the border - aerial surveillance and support functions.

Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said Monday that California is still reviewing President Trump's request for use of the state's National Guard members.

Earlier on Monday, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey in a statement said the state had deployed 225 National Guard troops to the border with Mexico, updating the number he announced last week which was 150.

Doug Ducey met with border sheriffs about Monday's deployment of National Guard troops to the USA border with Mexico.

Gov. Doug Ducey addressed part of the force at Papago Park Military Reservation. "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here".

Texas became the first state to send National Guard troops to the southern border, The New York Times reported, deploying 250 guards to the border Friday.

Arizona Governor Doug Ducey plans to send 338 troops to the border.

Trump said last week that he would be sending up to 4,000 troops to the southern border until his proposed border wall was built.

If 4,000 troops were deployed, that would be about double the current United States military presence in Syria and about half as many as the number of USA troops in Iraq.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, provided to ship members of his state's Guard as correctly. "The Guard will provide air support, reconnaissance support, operational support, construction of border infrastructure and logistical support".

National Guard troops were also sent to the border to assist by President George W. Bush in 2006 and President Barack Obama in 2010.

Joel Villarreal, the mayor of Rio Grande City in Texas, said he did not agree with what he characterized as "the militarization of the border".
