West Texas border Counties are getting federal help to bolster law enforcement.

It's part of Operation Stonegarden to beef up Federal, State, Local, and tribal efforts to secure the border.

Jeff Davis, Presidio, and Brewster Counties are each getting more than $900,000 dollars of the federal aid.

The goal of the money is to bring violence down, enforce immigration laws, and fight off illegal trafficking of guns and drugs.
