Planes, choppers to replace National Guard troops on border
In January, the Pentagon will begin pulling out most of the 1,200 National Guard troops stationed along the Southwestern border since 2010 and replacing them with military helicopters and airplanes, The Arizona Republic reports.


Officials from the Defense Department and Homeland Security say aircraft outfitted with high-tech radar and other gear can cover more ground than troops in spotting and catching illegal border crossers and drug smugglers.

Gonna bump this, could be important.

"... aircraft outfitted with high-tech radar and other gear can cover more ground than troops in spotting and catching illegal border crossers and drug smugglers."

As if they give a shit about catching these people. There must be another reason for pulling them out.
