California Governor Orders National Guard Away From The Border

California Governor Orders National Guard Away From The Border

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.

Governor Northam digs himself further into hole in new interview
Herring, who acknowledged wearing blackface at a party in 1980, would become governor if both Northam and Fairfax left office. We hope, for example, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation will show a willingness to investigate.

Trump and Democrats in Congress have been engaged in a contentious battle over his proposed U.S./Mexico border wall, which would extend all the way from the Pacific Ocean to East Texas.

Newsom's decision follows a move by New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to withdraw that state's troops from the border mission. And we have the largest percentage of immigrants in our state.

U.S. Military troops return from a test deployment with U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents after conducting an exercise at the San Ysidro port of entry with Mexico in San Diego on January 10.

In recent months, at least five governors recalled troops or withheld resources for Trump's immigration policies. The governor's office said the troops will be pulled back no later than March 31.

Jerry Brown (above right) originally approved the mission through the end of March, but qualified that the state's troops "will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".

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