President Donald Trump called last week for thousands of National Guard troops to be sent to the border in a deployment that some Democratic governors resisted and called political.
Susana Martinez's office said that more than 80 troops would deploy later this week. Under the federal law President Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops, governors retain command and control over their state's Guard members.
There is not a end date for the deployment, Abbott talked about: "We may be on this for the prolonged haul".
McMaster plans to make a similar offer to Arizona's Republican governor in the next few days.
After the deployment was approved by Ducey, the National Guard said 225 troops will be deployed to the border Tuesday and another 113 on Wednesday.
"Your support will free up the border agents to serve on the border allowing us to put more boots on the ground", Ducey said.
Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey told a group of soldiers preparing to deploy from a Phoenix military base that their "mission is about providing manpower and resources to support federal, state, county, tribal and local law enforcement agencies in stopping the flow of criminals, narcotics, weapons and ammunition that is being trafficked into our state". "You current me any one who's for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border proper right here".
"The Guard will provide air support, reconnaissance support, operational support, construction of border infrastructure and logistical support", the Arizona National Guard statement said.
The troops have been barred from interacting with migrants or any people that Border Patrol agents detain. Instead, the governor told The Associated Press it was no different than other states sending troops to SC to help after a hurricane.
Trump said last week that he would be sending up to 4,000 troops to the southern border until his proposed border wall was built.
Mr Brown's spokesman, Evan Westrup, said California officials still were reviewing Mr Trump's troop request.
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.
That's erased a decline for which President Trump repeatedly took credit.
President Barack Obama sent 1,200 troops in 2010 and President George W. Bush sent 6,200 to the border in 2006 as part of Operation Jump Start.
