National Guard members start arriving at US-Mexico border

Some National Guard members have started arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border with more expected as federal government officials continue to discuss what they'll do about illegal immigration.

Republican governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico have already committed 1,600 Guard members to the border on Monday.

With that - President Donald Trump recieved many of the troops he requested to fight what he's calls a 'Crisis of migrant crossings and crime'.

The only holdout border state is California, led by Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown.

He hasn't announced whether troops from California's National Guard will participate and has repeatedly fought with Trump over immigration policy.

Governors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the U.S. government picks up the cost.
