Arizona National Guard prepares to deploy to border

PHOENIX - The Arizona National Guard has activated a team of planners today to coordinate the deployment of 150 Guard personnel to the border next week.

These service members will provide mission-enhancing capabilities that allow Customs and Border Protection personnel to provide more law enforcement officers to the field.

The Guard will provide air support, reconnaissance support, operational support, construction of border infrastructure, and logistical support. This will allow CBP to increase operational control of the region.

Queries can be directed to the Arizona National Guard Public Affairs Officer, Capt. Aaron Thacker at [email protected] or at  (602) 513-6482.
