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.
If 4,000 troops were deployed, that would be about double the current USA military presence in Syria and about half as many as the number of U.S. troops in Iraq.
The Texas National Guard has also deployed 150 members for the border security mission announced by Trump earlier last week.
There is not a end date for the deployment, Abbott talked about: "We may be on this for the prolonged haul". The Texas governor explained that his contribution will be armed.
Arizona officials announced they were sending 225 National Guard members to the border Monday and pledged to deploy another 113 on Tuesday.

The New Mexico Guard members could help with air support, surveillance and infrastructure repairs, Hull said. "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here". Instead, the governor told The Associated Press it was no different than other states sending troops to SC to help after a hurricane.
Troops from SC have helped out on the border before, offering night surveillance by plane and helping a decade ago to build part of the existing wall on the border, Livingston said.
Trump had said on Thursday that the final deployment would range from 2,000 to 4,000 troops, and he would "probably" keep many personnel on the border until his promised border wall is built.
