 Posted on APRIL 06, 2018 12:00 AM

GUARD: President Donald Trump took steps Wednesday to send National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border the latest salvo in his immigration crackdown. The president issued a directive Wednesday evening that orders the Defense Department to support efforts to stop the flow of drugs, gang members, and undocumented immigrants into the country. The use of National Guard members will require approval from state governors. Trump doesnt specify how many troops should be deployed, or what tasks they should be assigned. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said earlier Wednesday that plans were still being finalized, but that troops could be sent to the border by evening. She declined to comment on the cost of the undertaking, but said past numbers should be indicative. POLITICO NEWS
