Governor Perry To Activate Texas National Guard

Published on July 21, 2014 by Larry Crippen

State Senator Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa from McAllen says that Governor Rick Perry is preparing to announce that he will activate the Texas National Guard during a news conference today.

The information is said to come from an internal memo from a state official’s office that says Perry plans to call around 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley. According to the memo, the size of the troops is expected to gradually reach 1000 after about a month.

The call for extra help has been spurred from the overwhelming influx of children and families from Central America crossing illegally into the United States.
