Major General Explains National Guard's Mission At The Border

The Arizona National Guard says it has gotten federal funding to deploy up to 440 soldiers along the state’s southern border, as part of Operation Guardian Support.

More than 230 of them are working with Customs and Border Protection while the rest are working in aviation areas.

Major General Michael McGuire, adjutant general for Arizona and director of the state Department of Emergency and Military Affairs, joined The Show to discuss their mission.

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
