美国国民卫队前往美墨边境 US National Guard Troops Head to the US-Mexico Border

美国亚利桑纳州向美国和墨西哥边境派出225名国民卫队。亚利桑纳州州长杜西说,星期二还将部署更多国民卫队。

在亚利桑那州之前,德克萨斯州上星期五向美墨边境派遣了250名国民卫队。

其它两个与墨西哥接壤的新墨西哥州和加利福尼亚州还没有派遣国民卫队。不过,新墨西哥州州长表示,他会派遣国民卫队。加利福尼亚州州长没有说该州是否参加这个行动。

美国国防部长马蒂斯上星期签署命令,授权派遣最多4000名国民卫队加强边界守卫。根据这个命令,五角大楼将在9月今年的财政年度结束之前提供派遣国民卫队的经费。

Arizona is sending 225 National Guard troops to the U.S./Mexico border and Gov. Doug Ducey said more troops would be deployed on Tuesday.

Arizona joins Texas, which sent 250 Guard troops to the border Friday.

The other two border states, New Mexico and California, have not called up any guardsmen, although New Mexico's governor has indicated that the state will participate in the activation. California's governor has not said what his state will do.

U.S. Defense Secretary James Mattis signed an order last week authorizing up to 4,000 National Guard troops to secure the border. The order provided Pentagon funding for the troops through September.
