President Trump has indicated he'll send National Guard troops to secure the nation's southern border. Some Governors are balking at the request, others are enthusiastic. Governor Bruce Rauner says there's a precedent for such requests.



The Illinois Senate is urging Gov. Bruce Rauner to reject a presidential call to send National Guard troops to help secure the U.S.-Mexican border. The Democratic-controlled Senate voted 33-22 to urge Rauner not to comply if President Donald Trump makes a request.
