AUSTIN (CBS Houston/AP) — Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott says up to 1,000 National Guard troops will be deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border to stop the immigrants who are crossing the border illegally for criminal purposes.

“The purpose of adding more resources on the ground is not to address the women and children, it’s to address the growing reality that a lot of people coming across the border are here for criminal purposes,” Abbott, the GOP gubernatorial hopeful, told Fox News on Monday. “They’re killing, they’re raping, they’re robbing, they’re doing all kinds of harsh criminal activity.”

Abbott said that women and children have been sexually assaulted by people who have come across the border.

“In addition to the tens of thousands of children and women who are coming across the border, we are seeing very dangerous cartel members, MS-13 gang members, some of the worst of the worst,” Abbott explained to Fox News.

Gov. Rick Perry announced Monday that he will be deploying National Guard troops to the border over the next month to combat what he said Monday were criminals exploiting a surge of children pouring into the U.S. illegally.

Perry, a vocal critic of the White House’s response to the border crisis who is himself mulling a second presidential run, said the state has a responsibility to act after “lip service and empty promises” from Washington.

“I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor,” the governor said.

Abbott stated that the National Guard will be acting as a “force multiplier” at the border.

“We’ve seen time and again … that when we have more boots on the ground at the border it reduces the cross-border traffic,” Abbott told Fox News, adding that he is working on the legalities of whether the troops will be allowed to make arrests.

Abbott also said that the federal government has turned its back on Texas.

Neither party cares. Both parties simply want to make all the illegals magically legal citizens.

That will fix things.
