Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey says 225 members of the state's National Guard are heading to the U.S. -Mexico border to support President Donald Trump's call for troops to fight drug trafficking and illegal immigration.

Approximately 250 National Guard troops were deployed to the Texas-Mexico border on Friday.

National guard members from Texas were shown in images taken over the weekend at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Texas and Arizona on Monday increased the number of National Guard troops they're sending to the U.S. -Mexico border, The Associated Press reported on Monday.

California Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, is considering sending California National Guardsmen to the border, according to Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan, a A Guard spokesman.

Mr 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.

The National Guard troops are expected to help Border Patrol lower the number of people and contraband entering the USA through the southern border.

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

El Paso Sector Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull says troops are nowhere near deploying yet.

Abbott told the San Antonio radio station KTSA that Texas would increase the number of troops it deploys by 300 each week. SC despatched troops to the border all through Operation Soar Start, the border deployment ordered by Bush in 2006.

He said that based on his conversations with President Trump and other officials, there's no end date on the deployment.

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

If the image is legitimate, then the "Access Denied" poster had barred several members of Conor McGregor's team. He later reiterated that stance on Fox Sports' " UFC Tonight", saying: "Conor does want to fight ".

Mr Trump and administration officials have said that rising numbers of people being caught at the southern border, while in line with seasonal trends in recent years, require an immediate response.

The National Guard has previously been deployed to help patrol the southern border, including in 2010 under former president Barack Obama, and from 2006-2008 under George W. Bush.

South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, a Republican, offered to send members of his state's Guard as well.

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.
