When the national guard deploys to situations like riots or sat the Mexican border, what types of MOS usually deploy? Is it where only certain MOSs like infantry are deployed or is every MOS usually involved? I'm new to the army and have a lot of unusual, stupid, or obvious questions so bear with me.

I think this is based on availability of units and the specific role of the NG in this mission. I was in a construction/engineering MOS. In 2010, PR governor deployed the NG to patrol with local police department in an effort to reduce the criminal activity in the island. I worked with them for one year. We had some training and a lot of instructions on rules of engagements. So answering your questions, this can be open to other MOS.
