Senator: Thousand National Guard Troops Headed To Mexico Border

(McAllen, TX) -- There are reports Texas will send a thousand National Guard troops to the Mexican border. McAllen state Senator Juan Hinojosa tells Texas-based newspaper "The Monitor" that Governor Rick Perry will make the announcement this afternoon in Austin. Hinojosa is accusing Perry of trying to politicize the issue to make a point. Perry has long lobbied for National Guard troops to be at the border. Meanwhile, Texas Republican Senator Ted Cruz told "Fox News Sunday" that President Obama is making false promises of amnesty to migrant children. Cruz also said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada is wrongly encouraging the belief that the border is secure.
