Just heard on the news.

Will that be enough and why did it take so long to do this? I think it is the polls.

Could he also pay the bill AZ has for him (the federal government) for educating and housing illegals (in prison)?

The question is? Is this just window dressing to take some heat off? Will they be allowed to actually do anything or will this be a camping trip for the guard? Given his actions so far I have to believe that this is nothing more than a make you feel good mission. No real objective is targeted.

I think this is probably political,and might be used to say "Hey im tough on borders..
Now we can push Amnesty right?
Will there be a backlash from ethnic lobbies & others?

KVOA.com | Tucson, Arizona 1,200 National Guard troops to be deployed to border

This is looking like it will be in the same manner that bush sent them...to help train, not to guard. I guess this is a false alarm meant to assuage only.

Exactly. Its called going through the motions.
The goal is to be seen. No captures, arrests, or measurable results required.
No different than alot of Gov agencies.

We were promised there would be no more amnesty the last time they did it and should not have. NO AMNESTY! Don't even say it and give someone the idea that is acceptable.
