Bush Intends to Send National Guard Troops to U.S.-Mexico Border

In an effort to hold onto a conservative Republican base that is becoming less and less supportive of him, President Bush this week, informed the public that he intends to deploy thousands of National Guard troops to the U.S. border with Mexico in order to thwart illegal immigration. In his speech, Bush said he would deploy up to 6,000 National Guard tropps to the 2,000 mile border as part of a nearly 2 billion dollar program to “seal off’ the U.S.’s border with it’s southern neighbor.

“We do not yet have full control of the border and I am determined to change that,” said Bush. “I am calling on Congress to provide funding for dramatic improvements in manpower and technology on the border.”
