California rejects Trump administration plan for National Guard troops on border

17 April 2018

California's Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who has repeatedly come in President Trump's political crosshairs, received rare praise from the president last week after he agreed to installing 400 troops in the National Guard's third large-scale border mission since 2006.

Jerry Brown that California is willing to deploy its National Guard to the border - and elsewhere in the state - to combat transnational crime, the Trump administration said Monday the terms of California's deployment are still under negotiation.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense Integration Robert G. Salesses says there is no estimate for the operation's cost, which is funded by the US government.

Trump has frequently clashed with Brown over the state's "sanctuary" policies limiting the participation of state and local police in federal immigration enforcement.

Brown has been the only holdout among border state governors, as Texas, New Mexico and Arizona - all led by Republicans - moved quickly to send personnel.

The Associated Press originally reported California rejected the federal government's initial plans for sending National Guard troops to the border because the work was considered too closely tied to immigration enforcement.

Keegan said Homeland Security officials and the Department of Defense have not replied to California's offer for a memorandum outlining the mission's scope.

Although there have been fewer documented illegal border crossings since Trump took office in 2017, Trump campaigned on increasing border security, which included building a wall along the border.

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. "It will be an iterative process".
