Texas has a governor who is an idiot. Yes, he can deploy the National Guard. But they are BY LAW unable to do anything. It is against the law for the Guard to act as a police force. It is called the ‘Posse Comitatus Act’. It is to protect US citizens from the military. Gov. Perry knows this full well, but he does not care. He is counting on YOU being too stupid to know any better. If you’re watching Fox News he’s probably right.
