That has erased a decline for which Trump repeatedly took credit. The governor said the troop deployment is justified by a sharp increase in apprehension of illegal entrants in March versus a year ago and denied that the move, financed by the federal government, is political. The decrease in arrests continues a almost two-decade trend.
Trump claimed he wishes to send 2000 to 4,000 National Guard members to the boundary. California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has not said if his state's Guard members will participate.
In a Tweet sent Monday morning, Ducey said some of the troops will be sent to Yuma, Ariz. As "commander in chief" of their states, governors may send their state National Guard to respond to natural disasters - floods, fires or earthquakes - but also emergencies such as the 1999 rioting during the Seattle World Trade Organization meeting.
South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, provided to ship members of his state's Guard as correctly.
"We may be in this for the long haul", he said.
"I work on the border every single day and we make arrests every single day", said Wilson, one of the leading voices of the union representing the Border Patrol.
"I don't think that this is a partisan issue or an identity issue", he told members of the media on Monday morning.

LG G7 ThinQ flagship phone to launch May 2 in the US
And although the images don't reveal what's lurking under the hood, they shed light on what we can expect from the smartphone. The leak from AndroidHeadlines shows us that the smartphone will be taller and slimmer as compared to the LG G6 model.
In a letter to Ducey, U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, a Tucson Democrat, called the deployment "a mistake and an ineffective and wasteful use" of military resources.
The deployment will be in order to "support border security measures", a press release said.
Ducey said that misstates what the soldiers will be doing. The other southwestern border state, California, is led by Democratic Gov. Most of the illicit drugs that enter the USA do so through the 2,000-mile border with Mexico.
Ducey indicated that while he'd like to see more "boots on the ground" and high-tech solutions for border security, he's also fully on board with Building The Wall (TM).
Pima County Sheriff Mark Napier said he is comfortable with that.
Ducey spoke Monday as he saw off guard members at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix. But Napier, a Republican, said such fears have been allayed.
The U.S. Constitution's "militia clause" authorizes the use of the National Guard by the federal government to "execute the laws of the Union, suppress insurrections and repel invasions". On Friday, Defense Secretary James Mattis signed a memo approving U.S. Department of Defense funding through September for up to 4,000 troops along the border. "AZNG personnel will provide support to federal law enforcement so they may better deploy enforcement personnel/resources".
It said "arming will be limited to circumstances that might require self-defense" but did not further define that.
