Gavin Newsom on Monday was expected to announce plans to withdraw several hundred National Guard troops from the state's border with Mexico. She withdrew most of her state's National Guard members from the border. Without California and New Mexico's forces, only just over 1,700 troops would be left in Texas and Arizona. They will focus on transnational crime such as drug and gun smuggling.

Providing more rationale in his order for his decision, the governor noted that while sending a surge of USA troops to the border, the federal government has underinvested in federal land management in California even as the state continues to face an unprecedented number of natural disasters - including wildfires - for which the state National Guard serves a critical role.

Newsom's move is an escalation of a long-running battle over immigration between California and the federal government, with the state's Democratic majorities pledging to serve as a buffer to Trump's hard-line rhetoric and policies.

Newsom - who has quickly positioned himself as the progressive adversary to Trump - argues that there is no "crisis" at the southern border, and wants to use National Guard troops for other missions.

Grisham, a Democrat, called Trump's frequent declarations of an immigration crisis at the border a "charade".

Last week, the president announced plans to deploy 3,750 USA military personnel to the border.

The move was a rebuke to President Donald Trump, who won election in 2016 partly on a populist pledge to build a wall on the southern US border which he said in his campaign Mexico would pay for. The governor's office says funding for this mission will continue to come from the federal government under the terms of the previous deployment agreed to by the Brown and Trump administrations. They can not act as a police force or make arrests.

California National Guard Major General David Baldwin told reporters Monday that Newsom's order went further than Brown's to make it clear that troops are not to enforce immigration laws.

Then-California Senate leader Kevin De Leon and 26 state legislators urged Brown to end the National Guard agreement. "It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life".

Newsom's decision to rollback Brown's troop deployment at the border does not come as a surprise.

"The Border "emergency" is a manufactured crisis," Newsom is reportedly set to say on Tuesday.
