Abbott Pledges More Troops To The Border; New Nasher Sculpture Prize Winner

National guard troops

"Governor Ducey, granting the deployment of the U.S. National Guard to the U.S. -Mexico border is a mistake and an ineffective and wasteful use of U.S. military resources", Grijalva said in a letter to Ducey that he released Monday.

Luis Videgaray said in a Monday interview with local media that he will give results of the analysis to President Enrique Pena Nieto in coming weeks.

That was confirmed Monday by Ducey's office, which said in a statement that Arizona guardsmen would act in "mission-enhancing capabilities" that will free up Border Patrol agents in the field. SC sent troops to the border during Operation Jump Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006.

Some Guard members will be armed if they are placed in potential danger, Abbott said.

Pima County Sheriff Mark Napier says he sees the border as a security and human rights issue.

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

Syrian troops on alert amid fear of U.S. strike after attack
The UN Security Council has called an emergency meeting for Monday to discuss the incident amid worldwide outrage over the alleged used of poison gas.

Texas announced the deployment of 150 Guardsmen to support Trump's new border-security mission on Friday night.

Governor Martinez is sending the soldiers in support of President Donald Trump's plan to deploy up to 4,000 National Guardsmen along the southwestern USA border with Mexico. He plans to work with federal officials to decide how long the National Guard stays at the border.

In Arizona, the state Nationwide Guard launched it was boosting the number of troops it's going to ship to the border to 338 from 225.

A Defense Department memo said the National Guard members will not perform law enforcement functions or "interact with migrants or other persons detained" without Mattis's approval.

On Monday, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection Blackhawk helicopter was in in the Roma area.

Ducey told reporters later that the deployments are needed to stop a surge of border crossings since March and accused the USA government of previously ignoring the border "for almost a decade".

Speaking post-match, Zidane said: " Cristiano is Cristiano, he has been this player all his life, scoring 50 goals a season". Even worse is the practice of jumping on every moment like the overhead kick as "proof" of one or the other being better.

California has not decided whether to send National Guard members to the border with Mexico to help President Donald Trump's deployment of troops to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking.

Mr Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said California officials still were reviewing Mr Trump's troop request.

New Mexico's Republican governor says her state will participate as well.

Ducey said that misstates what the soldiers will be doing.

The New Mexico Guard members could help with air support, surveillance and infrastructure repairs, Hull said.

Texas has also said it will send National Guard members to the border.

Brazilian Agribusiness Assesses Gains from Trade War between U.S. and China
Another round of proposed tariffs, another market meltdown. China is already too strong, its economy too big. US citizens will pay plenty for it.

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.
