Answer to Border Violence: Retreat
National Guard Being Pulled from Border

Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- May 28  

Dobbs: ...Mexico remains the principle source of all of this country's heroin, marijuana, cocaine, and methamphetamines and that has not changed one iota over the course of the past eight years. What -- is there any strategy for the United States to add its own military, its own significant law enforcement agency efforts to the war on drugs at the border because this is where most of those illegal drugs are crossing?
Wian: In fact, Lou, just the opposite is happening as you well know. There have been National Guard troops near the border for some time now supplementing the role of the Border Patrol and trying to stop drugs from coming across the border. There's only about 1,500 of them left now. Those troops are in the process of being pulled off despite the protest stations of many border governors. Those troops are going to be gone within a couple of months, Lou.
Red DotNote: In its April, 2008 aerial survey of the border from Fabens, Texas, to San Diego, California, American Border Patrol could find no National Guard providing security for the border, and only one National Guard construction crew working on the border fence. Last year ABP spotted 13 Guard outposts at Yuma alone.
