Hawaii Guardsmen Go North Of The Border

(KHNL) - Hundreds of Hawaii National Guardsmen will deploy to Arizona to increase border patrol security in the Southwest.

Hawaii will join 29 other states sending Army and Air National Guard personnel to the border.

Major General Robert Lee says their job will be to notify border security of illegal immigrants making their way from Mxico.

They will also provide humanitarian assistance until the immigrants can be taken into custody and sent back to Mexico.
