    Breaking: Arizona Gov. declares state of emergency at border, sending National Guard

    Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has declared a state of emergency at the state’s southern border with Mexico, sending 250 National Guard troops there to assist law enforcement officials.

    “The US Border Patrol is overwhelmed. Local law enforcement and mayors are calling out for help,” the Republican governor said Tuesday in a recorded statement.

    Ducey said the state would allot $25 million to fund the National Guard mission, but did not clarify how long the deployment would last.

    This comes as the US President Joe Biden is accused of inciting a chaotic migrant rush on the border with Mexico after he vowed to unwind many of the immigration policies of his predecessor Donald Trump when he assumed office in January.

    Ducey has quarreled with the Biden administration over its immigration policies, calling the situation on the border a “crisis.”

    “If this administration isn’t going to do anything, then we will,” Ducey said.

    His state is the first one to declare an emergency related to this year’s rapid rise in arrests of migrants crossing the border illegally.

    Border Patrol agents arrested nearly 168,000 at the border in March, in comparison with around 71,000 in December.

    Last month, Texas deployed around 500 National Guard troops at the border, but the state’s governor did not declare a state of emergency.

    Meanwhile, the American Civil Liberties Union in Arizona said Ducey’s actions “do nothing more than further militarize our border communities and stoke unnecessary and unjustified fear.”

    Also, Democratic Rep. Raul Grijalva, whose district includes Arizona’s southern border, described the deployment as a purely political move, saying the move will do nothing to resolve backlogs, improve care of unaccompanied minors, or help border communities.
