About time, but the amount is just a pittance. To achieve results the Army or Marines should be deployed or the National Guard Activated! The border is being neglected by the liberal O'Bomba regime.

Perhaps this time the tax dollars will buy more than a lawsuit that allowed the ACLU to rewrite the SO manual.

We just need the government to enforce the immigration laws and allow local LE to back them up. This will be the first big step in curbing illegal immigration and putting controls on the borders.

Breaking News from Foxnews.com :

National Guard to Deploy to Southwest Border Aug. 1

Administration officials on Monday announced that the 1,200 National Guard troops pledged weeks ago by President Obama will deploy to the southwest border starting on Aug. 1.

Alan Bersin, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, said the troops would "support" the efforts of Department of Homeland Security personnel already operating on the border.

"The Guard has been a tried and tested support to law enforcement ... and I'm confident they'll prove it again in this instance," Bersin said.

He said the deployment will coincide with a boost in surveillance technology in the region.

Obama in May announced the National Guard deployment amid increased concerns about border violence stemming from illegal immigration and drug smuggling. The announcement also came after Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a law making illegal immigration a state crime -- a policy the administration is trying to strike down in federal court.

Some border-state lawmakers criticized the National Guard plan as too weak to make a dent in border security challenges and expressed concern that the 1,200 who are deployed would be relegated to desk jobs. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., has called for 6,000 National Guard troops.

But officials on Monday described the deployment as a "bridge" to keep border security strong while 1,000 CBP agents are added over the next year.

National Guard Bureau Chief Gen. Craig McKinley said the Guard at the border would be working on criminal and intelligence analysis, as well as "entry identification" -- a specialty that involves surveillance. He said the full National Guard force should be stationed in the four U.S. border states by September.

Unfortunately for the people of the United States, the National Guard "support" for loaw enforcement is little more than relieveing them of the administrative burden and changeing their oil. Looks good on FOX and in the ADN but if you think there are now going to be armed troops enforcint eh border you are wrong. Just more eyewash from our masters in DC to keep you quite.
