Texas Gov. Rick Perry to send up to 1,000 guard troops to border

Gov. Rick Perry said Monday that he is deploying up to 1,000 National Guard troops over the next month to the Texas-Mexico border to combat criminals that Republican state leaders say are exploiting a surge of children and families entering the U.S. illegally. He rejected suggestions that Texas was militarizing local communities.
