Obama to Withdraw National Guard Troops at Border
President Obama plans to cut the number of National Guard troops stationed along the 2,000-mile U.S.-Mexico border in half starting next year, according to administration sources. (Houston Chronicle, Dec. 11, 2011; Fox News, Dec. 13, 2011; Washington Post, Dec. 14, 2011) Currently, 1,200 National Guard troops patrol the southern border where they assist both Customs and Border Protection officers in spotting illegal entries, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) with criminal intelligence.

Signaling a move away from the current “boots on the ground” approach, the troop withdrawal is part of the Obama Administration’s broader border security strategy, which includes refocusing its efforts on aerial surveillance. (San Francisco Chronicle, Dec. 13, 2011) According to media reports, members of the Army and Air National Guard will replace the ground troops by carrying out surveillance by aircraft, helicopters, and unmanned drones.

Department of Homeland Security officials insist the withdrawal is not a sign of a reduced commitment to border security, but rather the result of lessons learned about border enforcement. (Id.) One federal official involved in the Administration’s planning described the focus on aerial surveillance as “a historic and unprecedented enhancement in our ability to detect and deter illegal activity at the border.” (Id.)
Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA), who represents parts of San Diego near the U.S.-Mexico border, attributed the reduction to cuts in the Department of Defense. “What's apparent now is that a decision not to continue (the National Guard) deployment, even though it might be in the national interest to do so, would be based entirely on budget constraints on the Defense Department,” Hunter said. (Id.)
According to Lt. Col. Robert L. Ditchey, a spokesman for the Pentagon, “The Department of Defense and Department of Homeland Security are working together closely to explore options to further strengthen the already unprecedented levels of personnel, technology and infrastructure deployed at the southwest border.” (The Arizona Republic, Dec. 12, 2011)
