WASHINGTON — President Trump will issue a proclamation on Wednesday directing the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security to work with governors to deploy National Guard troops to the southwest border to assist the Border Patrol in combating illegal immigration.
“It’s time to act,” said Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of homeland security, as she outlined the policy during a White House briefing.
In recent days, and in anticipation of an annual increase in numbers of people who attempt to cross the border, the Trump administration has been ramping up plans to block migrants and asylum seekers, including young unaccompanied children, from entering the United States.
The announcement came a day after Mr. Trump said he wanted to send the military to the southwest border to guard against growing threats from unchecked immigration, suggesting he might want to use active-duty armed forces to do what immigration authorities cannot.
“We are going to be guarding our border with our military,” Mr. Trump had said on Tuesday during a meeting with Baltic heads of state. “That’s a big step.”
By Tuesday evening, the White House said Mr. Trump had been referring to mobilizing the National Guard, a step that previous presidents have taken to support border enforcement.
“We do hope the deployment begins immediately,” Ms. Nielsen said. “We’re working with all haste.”
The active-duty military is generally barred by law from carrying out domestic law enforcement functions, such as apprehending people at the border. Even so, previous presidents have deployed National Guard troops to act in support roles on the border with Mexico.
President Barack Obama sent 1,200 in 2010 and President George W. Bush dispatched 6,000 in 2006. Governors of border states have done the same when faced with large inflows from the south.
