National Guard presence at border to be reduced
Obama administration to reduce the number of National Guard troops deployed to Mexican border
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Obama administration is planning to reduce the number of National Guard troops deployed to the U.S. border with Mexico.

About 1,200 National Guard troops are working along the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

A spokesman for Republican Rep. Michael McCaul of Texas, Mike Rosen, says an administration official has told the congressman that the reductions will start next year, though exactly how many troops will be pulled back is unclear.



Rosen says the remaining troops are expected to focus on intelligence operations.
