Bush Considering use of National Guard at Border

The President will be speaking on immigration on Monday night, May 15th. He is expected to announce plans to help seal the nation's borders which may include, perhaps, using the National Guard.

Apparently, he is considering making federal aid available to states that deploy their National Guard to help patrol US borders, and allow border states to make use of National Guard troops from other states to bolster their ranks.
