Schwarzenegger to Order Troops to Border

Sacramento, CA (RSN)-
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has ordered 1,000 CA National Guardsmen to the southern border. The Governor has signed a second executive order that will allow the troops to stay through December 2008.
This decision by Gov. Schwarzenegger ends a more than two week standoff with the Bush Administration over the deployment of NG Troops to the southern border. Schwarzenegger originally disagreed entirley with the proposal but has since compromised.
The White House and Sacramento reached an agreement under which California will contribute the Guardsmen for border duty and the federal government will pick up the full cost in exchange according to Schwarzenegger spokesman Adam Mendelsohn.
