AUSTIN - Beefed up state patrols along the Texas-Mexico border are back in the spotlight. Two weeks ago, Governor Rick Perry authorized an additional $1.3 million a week for a border surge operation, which would increase state patrols along the border.
Texas Department of Public Safety officials will testify about the new operation in Austin today. They'll address the Texas House Committee on Homeland Security and Public Safety.
