Texas Braces for Arrival of Hundreds of National Guard Troops Over Protests

Not long from now, hundreds of Texas National Guard troops will descend on border towns in an unusual show of force.

The USA Today reports that some cities are welcoming the troops, who will arrive sporting camouflage and guns.

“If anything, [the guardsmen] will send a strong message that our border will be secure,” Rio Grande City Mayor Ruben Villarreal said. “We’ll have the manpower necessary to finally secure this area.”

Critics, including the federal government and state lawmakers, have said the troops’ presence could worsen the problem and even cause unnecessary deaths.

Gov. Rick Perry announced last week that he plans to bring in up to 1,000 troops.
