The New York Times reports Gov. Rick Perry of Texas was expected to announce on Monday the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops to the border with Mexico to bolster security as the Border Patrol faces an influx of Central American immigrants. Governor Perry was scheduled to announce the move at a news conference in Austin, according to a spokeswoman for a Democratic lawmaker, State Senator Juan Hinojosa, who represents the area and who was told of the plan. The governor’s office declined to comment. It comes after Mr. Perry spent the weekend in northern Iowa, his fourth visit in eight months to that key state for political primaries, as he contemplates a second run for president. Nearly two weeks ago, Mr. Perry, one of the most vocal critics of the Obama administration’s handling of the border crisis, met with President Obama in Dallas to discuss border security.
