National Guard

Drudge and a newsroom source of mine says we’re headed toward an announcement that the National Guard is heading to the southern border. Some notes:

The Pentagon is preparing to mobilize as many as 5-thousand National Guard troops to assist in patrolling the southwest borders, in an effort to slow the flow of Mexican illegal immigrants into the U.S. President Bush is expected to annonce his decision on the possible use of military forces in his speech Monday night.

According to Pentagon and military officials, while the federal government would pay for the deployments the National Guard forces would remain under the command of the individual state governments, similar to the way National Guard forces are deployed and paid for during natural disasters.
