National Guard Contributes To Over 10K Arrests Of Ilegal Immigrants At Southern Border

The 1,600 guardsmen, who were deployed in April, have also intercepted more than 3,300 people from attempting to cross the border illegally.
The deployment has also contributed to the seizure of nearly 12,000 pounds of marijuana.
Back in April, CBP said the National Guard is meant to help the agency regain operational control of the border in an effort to keep America safe.
