National Guard Will Patrol California Board

Texan officials said about 300 troops would be dispatched by the state weekly until the complement of the National Guard reaches at least 1,000

Authorities have said the new barrier would help curb illegal crossings and drug trafficking in one of the busiest sectors along the border.

Maj. Gen. Michael McGuire said Wednesday that that they will perform ground-based missions but did not provide more details.

The guardsmen are being added as part of Trump's plan announced last week for the military to shore up the southern border until his administration builds his long-proposed wall there.

McGuire says other troops who are deployed will have tasks in engineering, transportation, surveillance and communications. Where the additional personnel are located "will be dictated by the needs on the ground", Brown spokesman Evan Westrup said in an email. "The California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".

Trump promises 'forceful' response over chemical weapons attack in Syria
Britain is considering military action against the Syrian government after a poison gas attack killed dozens, including children . Macron and Trump had again reiterated their desire for a "strong reaction" from the worldwide community, Macron's office said.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey had pledged to send 338 troops to the border, but McGuire said that number could soon increase.

Until Wednesday, California was the only state that didn't respond to Trump's request.

The governor stressed in his statement that the troops will not be used to "round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life". The Republican governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico on Monday committed 1,600 Guard members to the border, giving President Donald Trump numerous troops he requested to fight what he's called a crisis of migrant crossings and crime.

Governor Jerry Brown has agreed to deploy 400 National Guard troops at President Donald Trump's request, according to the Associated Press.

McGuire said the current available funding could support the deployment of up to 4,000 troops in four border states: Arizona, California, New Mexico and Texas.

The Pentagon has said National Guard troops will not perform a law-enforcement role, and will be armed only for the objective of self-defense.

Across California, 250 members of the state's National Guard are conducting what the governor called "counterdrug missions", including the 55 at the border.

Brown's letter came as thousands of National Guard members deployed to the Mexican border.

The federal government must agree to the terms before the troops would be deployed.

California deployed troops to the border under former Presidents George W. Bush in 2006 and Barack Obama in 2010.
