Expresses the sense of Congress that: (1) the escalating level of violence on the United States-Mexico border is a serious threat to U.S. national security; (2) the Administration, as well as state and local authorities, should take appropriate steps to deal with such threat; (3) the Administration should deploy the National Guard to such border as has been requested by a number of border state governors and Members of Congress; and (4) troops that are deployed should be given very clear rules of engagement and should be armed and allowed to defend themselves if attacked.
