California rejects some border tasks

Report: California rejects Trump's National Guard plan Top News: California in dispute over Trump administration plan for National Guard troops at border
Ellis Copeland | 17 April, 2018, 20:30

Brown said the state laws, now the target of a Justice Department lawsuit, do not interfere with the work of Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

California has rejected a preliminary federal plan for the state's National Guard troops deployed to the border because it entails too much support for immigration enforcement, according to USA officials.

But given the virulent context brought about by President Trump's avowed campaign against immigration, Democratic leaders throughout California - including the Democratic candidates for governor - had urged Brown to reject Trump's request for troops.

"To be clear, border security is and will remain a civilian law enforcement responsibility; the National Guard will serve in a support capacity and not be directly involved in border patrol", he added.

Brown could make his first public comments on the potential deployment to the Mexican border Tuesday morning when he addresses the National Press Club in Washington. President Trump orders troops to border of USA and MexicoKeegan released a statement saying, "the federal government has not yet responded and added that the next step is for the federal government to respond by signing the Memorandum of Agreement".

It's unclear. Even the Associated Press reported that California told officials that it wouldn't permit its own troops present & ldquo or to fix and mend vehicles and function surveillance detectors to document suspicious activity, function radios;mission support.

Officials said they are planning for a mission that would include some 2,000 troops in total. Tyler Houlton said in a tweet that the California governor shares an interest on securing the border with Mexico.

"We're not going to do the work of the federal government", he said. "They will provide much-needed aerial support, and we anticipate they will help with repairing roads and vehicles along with other duties", said Ronald Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner for U.S. Customs and Border Protection. He noted the presence of 50 California Guard troops now stationed near the Mexico border and hundreds more working on smuggling issues.

"Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border". We got a signal from California they're interested in improving border security. Drawing that line will likely prove hard because the Border Patrol combats illegal immigration but also drug smuggling and other crimes.

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan said Monday that the state was awaiting a formal response from the administration and had no additional details beyond the governor's proposed agreement released last week that includes a ban on immigration enforcement.

The Democratic governor cast his decision as a welcome infusion of support paid for by the USA government to fight transnational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers. DHS and our federal partners are committed to working with the Governor to mobilize the California National Guard to assist DHS' frontline personnel in our vital missions.

It will be up to governors and adjutant generals of each state participating to decide of guard members will carry their personal weapons for self-defense, Hokanson said.

Texas, Arizona and New Mexico, though, have embraced Mr. Trump's call.
