Texas to Guard Borders?

I found this little tidbit over at RealClearPolitics.
    Gov. Rick Perry said Monday he will send a dozen armed security platoons from the Texas Army National Guard to help law enforcement officers secure the border.

    The 604 newly activated troops are to be part of Operation Wrangler -- an interagency law enforcement effort aimed at reducing crime and increasing security across the state.

    The troops will stay active for an undisclosed period of time in areas across Texas. A spokeswoman for the governor said she could not elaborate "on the timing or places, but the surge operation will be on a statewide level." you think they are finally hearing us or is this just for show? I have no idea, since everything seems to only matter if they can re-elected or not! Let's hope my skeptism is wrong.
