Our first report: soldiers with the U.S. National Guard, part of the military, are headed to the border between America and Mexico. President Donald Trump signed a memorandum earlier this week to deploy the guard there. He wrote that under former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the National Guard supported efforts to secure America's southern border, and that the crisis there once again calls for the guard to help protect the border and the U.S. homeland.
The president also says gangs and large amounts of illegal drugs flowing across that border. In December, the government reported that illegal border crossings were at a 46-year low for the last fiscal year under President Trump.
But a separate report released this week said the number of people trying to illegally cross the border increased dramatically in March, more than 200 percent over the number from last March. The Trump administration says historically, border crossings increased in the spring months.
But critics say the president is inappropriately using the military to secure the border because he's frustrated that Congress hasn't approved funding yet for the new wall he wants to build there.
The number of National Guard soldiers, the cost of sending them, their exact locations and the length of their deployment are all still being worked out.
Another announcement by President Trump we've covered recently involves the new U.S. tariffs on certain goods from China. Part of the reason for that, the Trump administration blames China for stealing $300 billion of U.S. intellectual property, things like books, clothing, designs, music, photographs and art. This could include illegally reproducing goods that were patented in the U.S. or the act of pirating, illegally copying or distributing movies and TV.
总统还表示，犯罪团伙和大量非法毒品经由该边境流通 。去年12月发布的政府报告显示，在特朗普总统执政的上一财年，非法越境的人数创下46年来新低 。
但是本周公布的另一项报告显示，3月份试图非法越境的人数大幅增加，增幅较去年3月增长了200%以上 。特朗普政府表示，从历史情况上看，非法越境现象通常在春季增加 。
我们最近报道过特朗普总统另一项声明，即美国对中国特定进口商品征收新关税 。实施此举措的部分原因在于，特朗普政府指责中国窃取了美国价值3000亿美元的知识产权，包括书籍、服装、设计、音乐、照片和艺术品 。这可能包括非法复制在美国获得专利的产品，或盗版、非法复制或发行电影和电视 。
