Border wall

President Trump is calling in the National Guard to provide supplemental security for the Mexican border. He made the decision official yesterday, and the gesture is being generally well received in Texas and Arizona.  California officials would like more details on how the president envisions this working – like the number of troops, how long they will be deployed, and how much it will cost.  The White House has not outlined those details as yet, but says that the move is in part a response to a surge in attempted border crossings in March. Analysts point out that crossings historically increase as weather improves, but otherwise border crossing numbers have been historically low.
