Gov. Grisham’s order to remove National Guard troops from the border came just days after the Trump administration ordered the Pentagon to send more than 3,700 additional troops to the border. Among the latest to deploy are 250 soldiers sent to Eagle Pass, Texas, across the Rio Grande from a Mexican border town where a caravan of some 1,800 asylum seekers arrived this week. Customs and Border Protection says its agents can process fewer than 20 asylum claims a day at Eagle Pass.
