National Guard Prepares For Border Deployment

National Guard troops are gearing up to head to the U.S. Mexico border next month for a year long deployment.

Their mission is looking out for illegal border crossers and smugglers, and assisting with criminal investigations.

The troops will be armed but can use their weapons only to protect themselves. 250 National Guard troops from Texas will deploy to help with the effort.
