Arizona is deploying 225 National Guard troops to support President Trump’s call for the military to help secure the U.S.-Mexico border, its governor announced Monday.
“Just updated Arizona border sheriffs on today’s deployment of National Guard. LATEST: 225 guard members being deployed today, additional members tomorrow,” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) said in a tweet.
“These troops will be helping our federal partners with any support role responsibilities that they need, and will be stationed in both the Tucson and Yuma sectors,” he added in a second tweet.
