  1. Texas Mobilizes National Guard to Man Border

    Texas Governor Rick Perry will send 1,000 members of the National Guard to the state’s southern border, a move he considers necessary to protect local communities against crime. He expects the federal government to foot the bill — approximately $12 million a month — citing the administration’s failure to deal with the surge of immigrant children flooding the state. The White House has not responded to the announcement, but Texas Democrat Joaquín Castro has accused Perry of militarizing a humanitarian crisis.
