SAN ANTONIO (Worthy News)-- In an effort to boost security along the U.S.-Mexico border, Texas Governor Rick Perry plans to deploy 1,000 Texas National Guards troops to deal with the surge of illegal immigrants entering the United States.
Texas Governor Rick Perry said on Monday he planned to send 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Mexican border to boost security during a surge in illegal immigration by children, a move that could increase pressure on President Barack Obama.
Perry said the National Guard would help the state’s surveillance and deploy some of its assets, such as aircraft, to monitor the border. He give no indication the Texas National Guard would work directly with U.S. Border Patrol. -- Source
