Added troops will patrol border, but not enforce security

Aug 19, 2010 3:00:00 AM - latimes.com
Obama sends 224 California National Guard members to act as "a visible deterrent … and additional eyes and ears" in the San Diego area. About 550 other National Guard members are deploying to Arizona.

The contingent of National Guard troops scheduled for deployment next month at the California- Mexico border will be smaller and more narrowly focused than past missions, aiming at front-line deterrence rather than building fences and roads, according to federal officials.
