    California's governor agrees to deploy 400 National Guard troops at Trump's request

    Updated: 12:49 PM PDT Apr 11, 2018

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) —
    California Gov. Jerry Brown responded to President Donald Trump’s request to add more troops for border security, saying he’ll add about 400 troops, but also saying they won’t used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.”

    Trump said last week he wants to send 2,000 to 4,000 National Guard members to the border, issuing a proclamation citing "the lawlessness that continues at our southern border."

    Arizona, New Mexico and Texas all made new pledges that add up to almost half of the up to 4,000 troops Trump requested. Some Guard members started arriving at the border as states and the federal government officials continued to discuss what they will do.

    Read Gov. Brown's full letter below.

    Dear Secretary Nielsen and Secretary Mattis:

    Pursuant to your request, the California National Guard will accept federal funding to add approximately 400 Guard members statewide to supplement the staffing of its ongoing program to combat transnational crime. This program is currently staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 at the California border.

    Your funding for new staffing will allow the Guard to do what it does best: support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers along the border, the coast and throughout the state. Combating these criminal threats are priorities for all Americans – Republicans and Democrats. That’s why the state and the Guard have long supported this important work and agreed to similar targeted assistance in 2006 under President Bush and in 2010 under President Obama.

    But let’s be crystal clear on the scope of this mission. This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life. And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.

    Here are the facts: there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California. Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they’ve been in nearly 50 years (and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California).

    I agree with the Catholic Bishops who have said that local, state and federal officials should “work collaboratively and prudently in the implementation of this deployment, ensuring that the presence of the National Guard is measured and not disruptive to community life.”

    I look forward to working with you on this important effort.

    Sincerely,

    Edmund G. Brown Jr.

    Trump should put that in an ad for future elections. YES!! Trump has done a good job on border security and illegal immigration. There is no denying that, and he's not going to let anyone mess up his results with surges now.

    But let’s be crystal clear on the scope of this mission. This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life. And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.
    Does Governor Brown not know that women and "children" work for the transnational gangs he claims he wants to stop? Maybe someone should tell him. Women are very active in the illegal drug trade as are children.

    Nevertheless, we thank you for accepting federal money to send 400 CA NG to the border.

    "There are already around 55 California Guardsmen providing support on the state's southern border.

    "These personnel perform a variety of missions, including surveillance support at the San Diego Harbor, horizontal engineering in an effort to repair roads, fences and culverts, and criminal analysis with state and federal law enforcement personnel in support of counter-narcotics and counter-narcoterrorism operations," the California National Guard said in an email."

    California OKs limited troop deployment for Trump's request


    KATHLEEN RONAYNE
    ,Associated PressApril 11, 2018

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown agreed Wednesday to deploy 400 National Guard troops at President Donald Trump's request, but not all will head to the U.S.-Mexico border as Trump wants and none will enforce federal immigration enforcement.

    "Let's be clear on the scope of this mission," the Democrat Brown wrote in a letter to the Trump administration. "This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life."


    Instead, Brown said the troops would join an existing program to combat transnational drug crime, firearms smuggling and human trafficking. They would join 250 existing California National Guard troops, including 55 who are at the border.


    Trump wants up to 4,000 troops sent to the border to combat illegal immigration and drug trafficking and has already won commitments for about 1,600 from the Republican governors of the other states that border Mexico — Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.


    The California Guard members may be deployed at the border, the coast and elsewhere statewide, Brown said.


    The federal government must agree to the terms before the troops would be deployed.

    California deployed troops to the border under former Presidents George W. Bush in 2006 and Barack Obama in 2010.

    The States need to REFUSE to deploy their firefighters to California this fire season.

    YOU want to be on your own and not cooperate with the rest of the Country...YOU got it!

    Send them nothing!
