National Guard troops scare would-be migrants away from border

SAN LUIS RIO COLORADO, Mexico (AP) - U-S and Mexican officials say the arrival of National Guard troops in Arizona has scared off illegal Mexican migrants along the border, significantly reducing crossings. American authorities say overall, detentions along the U.S.-Mexico border decreased by 21 percent in the first ten days of June, compared with the same period a year ago.

The Border Patrol says along the Arizona border, once the busiest crossing spot, detentions have dropped 23 percent. And they are down 31 percent along the Texas and New Mexico border. A Border Patrol spokesman says the desert region's blistering June temperatures typically drive down the number of migrants, but not so drastically.
