First National Guard Troops Deploy to Arizona


The first of hundreds of National Guard troops take up positions along Arizona’s Mexico border Monday.

They’re part of President Obama’s plan to beef up border security, although the soldiers won’t have any law enforcement authority.

A total of 532 guardsmen will be deployed in Arizona by the end of September.

    Or perhaps adhere to the old act of "shoot first and then ask questions".. less arguments from them. In other words CYA first.

    All they need to know is how to say a few words in the native language. "Stop or I'll Shoot you".

    Give the gaurds training so they can have arrest powers. Because without it they don't need to be there.
