Rick Perry Makes Announcement About National Guard at Border

On Monday at 3 p.m. EST, Texas Governor Rick Perry is expected to announce that he is activating National Guard troops along the Texas-Mexico border. 

“The senator understands that Perry wants this troop build-up, but is not sure what kind of federal approval he needs for it. He just knows he wants to deploy 1,000 troops there,” Jennifer Saenz, a spokesman for State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa (D-McAllen) said in a Houston Chronicle article

Perry will be joined by Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Texas Adjutant General John Nichols, and Director of Public Safety Steve McCraw, according to the Texas Tribune
