    Guard will meet border deadline
    The Associated Press
    Published 12:52 pm PDT Friday, July 14, 2006
    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army National Guard will meet its Aug. 1 deadline for deploying troops to help along the Mexican border, the Guard chief said Friday.

    Lt. Gen. Steven Blum said about 3,600 soldiers are in the Southwest border states of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

    "That number will grow to up to 6,000 by the first of August, as promised," he told a Pentagon news conference.

    The deployments are part of an immigration plan announced by President Bush in mid-May. Troops are helping with aerial reconnaissance and in shoring up infrastructure like roads and sensors. That is designed to free immigration agents to focus on law enforcement.

    Blum said he spoke to correct reports that the Guardsmen were not arriving on time.

    Guess we'll see. Didn't Lou Dobbs say this week under 1,000 National Guard Troops were down there? I'd like a reporter check on the troops and see exactly what they are doing and where. But I don't expect that to happen of course.

    No, you hardly evder hear anything about the border,and the Gauards, unless Lou Dobbs, or maybe Anderson Cooper covers it.

    Notice how that big shoot out, two days ago, between Border Patrol and the Illegals never made the news?
