Dismissing the promised August 1, 2010 delivery date of 1,200 National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says the troops – pledged to Arizona and other border states – won’t be in place for weeks, even months.
“The first began arriving, or the command and control elements began arriving, on the 1st of august. They should all be there within, I would say, 30 to 60 days,” said Napolitano.
The original promise, made back in July 2010 by the Obama administration, was for an August 1 deployment of 1,200 National Guard troops along the border — 524 to Arizona, 250 to Texas, 224 to California, 72 to New Mexico, and 130 to a national liaison office.
