border today. kris sanchez is live in the newsroom with what that will mean for the border and closer for here at home in the bay area. we are only talking about 30 troops starting work today patrolling the u.s./mexico border, but by the end of september they will be joined by 500 more. they were ordered there by president obama a few months ago and have been training since. 224 national guard troops from california will likely be deployed to the border on wednesday. governor schwarzenegger said they are trained and ready to go. here's one problem many americans have for this deployment. the service men and women will carry guns but only for self-defense, and they don't have authority to arrest anyone if anyone is crossing illegally or breaking the law. if a national guard soldier is crossing illegally, they have to call the border patrol for action. the bill means better tools, night vision equipment, cameras,
5:01 am
computers and radios. while much of this deployment has to do with the immigration debate in the u.s., there's no question the drug war along the border is escalating. just yesterday a mayor in a mexican state which bordered texas was assassinated in his truck as he was driving with his daughter. that's one thing for our california national guard troops to remember as they head there on wednesday. good news this morning, nbc bay area news learned that the fremont police officer shot friday is getting better this morning. 39-year-old todd young is still in critical condition after someone shot him as he served a warrant. doctors say he's stabilized after a pair of surgeries. this weekend there was an outpouring of support as people donated blood in pleasant hill. the red cross said young needed at least 60 units of blood during surgeries and will require more since doctors say more surgeries are planned.

5:43 am
pulled from the game. and there's one tough new law in new mexico that says they can't return for seven days without medical consent. they can't return for seven days period. they have to have medical consent. most of those laws require some sort of doctor's note. it's a huge issue. as you said not only among high school kids but those as young as 8. this study looked at ten years worth of emergency room records. they found that 140,000 children showed up in emergency rooms last year with head injuries from playing sports. back to you. >> thanks. the feds are going after retired baseball star roger clemens. he is scheduled to be arraigned in federal court today. he faces charges including perjury and obstructing congress. he is accused of lying to the house of representatives that he never took performance-enhancing drugs back at a hearing in 2007. today a judge will ask him if he

5:46 am
with the fact that the service men and women will be carrying guns, but those guns will only be for defense. they will not be used to stop someone breaking the law. if they spot someone crossing the border illegally, they have to call the border patrol for action. the bill means better tools, night vision equipment, cameras, computers and radios. while much of this deployment has to do with the immigration debate in the u.s., there's no question the drug war along the border is escalating. just yesterday a mayor in a mexican state which bordered texas was assassinated in his truck as he was driving with his daughter. that's one thing for our california national guard troops to remember as they head there on wednesday. yesterday a mosque was set
