WASHINGTON — As the drug cartels spin out of control in Mexico, the Obama administration announced Monday that it intends to proceed with plans to deploy 1,200 National Guard troops, starting Aug. 1, to help protect the border, CNN reported.

Additionally, 300 Customs and Border Protection agents will be added along with an increase in technology and aircrafts, Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Alan Bersin said Monday at a press conference, according to CNN.

CNN reported that that the authorities had previously announced the deployment of troops, but had not set a date.

“These troops will provide direct support to federal law enforcement officers and agents working in high-risk areas to disrupt criminal organizations seeking to move people and goods illegally across the Southwest border,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said in a statement.
