Gov. Rick Perry says he is deploying 1,000 National Guard troops in the Rio Grande Valley. “What we are asking the National Guard to do is to be a force multiplier, to be there as a partner with the law enforcement, something which they have done multiple times before. These are individuals that come from our communities,” Perry said.

Eduardo Campirano, chairman of the Rio South Texas Economic Council, said his group is firmly opposed to the deployment of National Guard troops in the Rio Grande Valley. “Adding a military presence to our communities will only create an inaccurate image that our safe and viable border region in the Rio Grande Valley is dangerous,” he said.
