ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the deployment of National Guard soldiers along the U.S. border to help the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency control the influx of illegal immigrants. U.S. President George W. Bush stated in a televised address in May 2006 that Guard units will not be involved in direct law-enforcement activities. Instead they would assist the CBP in such operations as operating surveillance systems and analyzing intelligence.
