Guard troops to head to border states Aug. 1

WASHINGTON National Guard troops will head to the U.S.-Mexico border Aug. 1 for a yearlong deployment to keep a lookout for illegal border crossers and smugglers and help in criminal investigations, federal officials said Monday.

The troops will be armed, but can use their weapons only to protect themselves, Gen. Craig McKinley, chief of the National Guard Bureau said at a Pentagon news conference. The troops will undergo initial training and be fully deployed along the nearly 2,000-mile southern border by September.

Shoot on sight should be their orders, except for the hot chicks.

Oh goody.
More Federal government sponsored tourists to help rebuild the Arizona economy. I hope they buy as much film for their cameras as the last bunch of losers.

This is just a setup by Obama. When court is evaluating the AZ battle the Govt. can say "See we have thousands of troops on the border, more then ever". Then they can claim AZ has no right to proceed since Govt. is doing their job. ITS ALL A SCAM once again - just wait and see.

Here is the breakdown:

The 1,200 troops will be distributed among four border states, with Arizona getting 524; Texas, 250; California, 224 and New Mexico, 72. Another 130 would be assigned to a national liaison office.

They'll actually be deployed out on the border? Not just running patrols FROM a base?

hmm

It will be interesting to see "what" exactly they do. Apparently, Homeland Security will be sending six aircraft and helicopters to the border.

They are also sending 300 Customs and Border Protection agents and inspection officers to the Tucson area, along with mobile surveillance vans and additional technology.
