Guard halved at the Border
The National Guard has been along our borders since 2006 and has begun the scaling back process that will terminate with full removal in September of 2008. The numbers are being cut from 6,000 troops to 3,000 troops and they will be incrementally reduced over the next few months. The National Guard originally entered to free up agents to do other border enforcement activities.
