Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- January 23
Wian:  ...In a statement a Homeland Security spokeswoman said Secretary Chertoff has made it very clear that we are going to use every tool in our power to protect our border agents and do whatever the American people have demanded, secure our borders. Right now, Lou, there are 2,600 National Guard troops on our southern border with no power to apprehend anyone.
Dobbs: And they are near the border not actually categorically on the border.
 Transcript
American Border Patrol reports that during its January 15-18 survey it found no indication that the National Guard was on the border for security, and only one instance where camouflaged persons were doing construction. "At one point we documented thirteen National Guard outposts along the Colorado River near Yuma," said Glenn Spencer of ABP. "During our last survey we found all National Guard outposts from Texas to California to be abandoned."
