California rejects Trump administration plan for National Guard troops on border

California rejects Trump administration plan for National Guard troops on border

Last week, Governor Jerry Brown confirmed that he was willing to deploy upwards of 400 troops to the United States' border with Mexico, but added the service members would be prohibited from aiding federal agents in stemming the flow of people across the border.

The governor's commitment allowed Trump to boast support from all four border-state governors and helped put the president above the lower end of his threshold of marshaling 2,000 to 4,000 troops that he wants as a border security mission to fight illegal immigration and drug trafficking. Jerry Brown is rejecting the troops' assignment from the federal government.

The state's position infuriated some federal officials because the restrictions California officials wanted to impose on what the state's troops would not do were considered onerous, the officials said.

According to Associated Press sources, Brown would agree to send troops as long as they were not involved in immigration enforcement.

Salesses, the Pentagon official, said the Border Patrol had asked California to send 237 troops to the agency's San Diego and El Centro sectors, but state officials panned the request.

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan told the Associated Press on Monday that the state was awaiting a formal response from the Trump administration.

Vitiello made the comments to reporters in Washington Monday after two USA officials told The Associated Press said terms of the federal government's initial plans for sending National Guard troops to the border because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration.

Lawmakers declined to provide Trump the $25 billion his administration is seeking to build hundreds of miles of barriers at the border, and the president this month said the National Guard deployment could be needed until a wall - his signature campaign promise - was in place.
