    Mexico's Foreign Relations Department is denouncing Texas' decision to deploy National Guard troops along the border.

    The department said in a statement Friday that Texas' decision "doesn't help joint efforts to have a modern, prosperous and safe border."

    A new wave of National Guard troops were deployed along Texas' border with Mexico this week as part of a counterdrug task force. Mexico says there hasn't been a change of border security to justify the decision.

    It says such measures "deviate from the path of dialogue and cooperation."
