CRS examines the National Guard border deployment issue

Filed under: Border Security,Legal Issues — by Christian Beckner on May 26, 2006

The Congressional Research Service released a timely report a few days ago on the issue of sending the National Guard to the US-Mexico border, available publicly for the first time here at HLS Watch:

RS22443: Border Security and Military Support: Legal Authorizations and Restrictions, May 23, 2006.

It provides a solid, fact-filled overview of the issue, looking at the impact of the Posse Comitatus Act in this case and examining how troops have been used to support counternarcotic efforts at the border in recent years.
