Arkansas Guard Headed for Texas Border

LITTLE ROCK, AR (Ben caxton) — Arkansas National Guard troops currently serving along the frontier in New Mexico are leaving. Arkansas Govenor Asa Hutchinson signed an order relocating the troops to Texas to help enforce border security in that state. As many as eight Arkansas troops and two helicopters have serving in New Mexico since May of 2018. Earlier this week, New Mexico Gov. Lujan Grisham ordered the New Mexico National Guard withdrawn from border deployment and directed troops from other states to return home. Arkansas Adjutant General Mark Berry will now shift his troops to Texas, where the security needs are greater. Last week Arkansas troops helped federal officials seize 136 pounds of marijuana and arrest four men trying to cross into the United States along the New Mexico border.
