Texas National Guard wants 'predictability' on border surge
from The Associated Press via ABC News
Facing a longer mission on the Texas-Mexico border than planned since being deployed last summer, the Texas National Guard on Wednesday sought "predictability" for the troops who are sleeping in motels and watching for a dwindling number of people illegally entering the U.S. The request to Texas lawmakers came as nearly $1 billion in border security spending since 2008 drew scrutiny, and Gov. Greg Abbott remained silent over whether the guard is leaving soon or not.
