California Governor Gavin Newsom is reportedly planning the abrupt withdrawal of his state's National Guard troops from the U.S. border this week; calling the President's policy towards national security a "manufactured crisis".
About 360 guardsmen are now stationed near the border in California, though the number changes from day to day, Newsom said. 110 members are expected to work with the California Department of Forestry and Fire; 100 members will be transferred to intelligence operations against drug cartels.
The two states' previous governors had agreed a year ago to a Trump administration request to send troops to the border; the decision to withdraw the service members effectively bucks the president's request for support, signaling perhaps a new tone from the two Democratic governors, who were each newly elected to their offices in November.
The governor, a Democrat who took office in January, said border crossings were at their lowest level since 1971 and that the state's undocumented population had dropped to a more than 10-year low.
In the reported excerpts from his speech, California's Newsom says that he will redeploy the troops to support efforts to counter wildfires and drug smuggling.
Newsom's predecessor -former Gov.
Newsom's and Grisham's actions are a fresh, if symbolic, affront to President Donald Trump's description of an immigration crisis on the nation's southern border. Every president since Ronald Reagan has called on the National Guard for limited, temporary missions along the frontier.
