National guard members from Texas were shown in images taken over the weekend at the U.S. -Mexico border.
The announcement comes as Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced his intention to increase the Texas deployment of National Guard troops to at least 1,000, KTSA-San Antonio reported.
The statement came after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey announced that more troops would be sent Tuesday but did not specify how many.
Texas is also sending National Guard members to the southwestern USA border.
But the state's National guard did not return phone and email messages Monday seeking comment on how many have arrived. Under the federal law Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops, governors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the US government picks up the cost. "But it certainly is about border security". SC sent troops to the border during Operation Jump Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006. The state's National Guard in a statement later that 113 members would follow the initial deployment of 225.
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. He added that he wanted to "downplay any notion" that "our National Guard is showing up with military bayonets trying to take on anybody that's coming across the border, because that is not their role".
"This is a step up from the militarization, something we just absolutely don't need", said Pedros Rios.
On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis signed a memo that authorized the federal government to pay for the potential deployment of up to 4,000 National Guard troops for the border mission through September.
The department said the troops would not carry out law enforcement activities without the defense secretary's approval and would be armed only in "circumstances that might require self-defense".
The group didn't make it into the US, but this is the type of activity the president wants to stop by deploying the National Guard to the border.
