National Guard refutes report that governor is rejecting border assignment

National Guard refutes report that governor is rejecting border assignment

Jerry Brown rejected terms of the National Guard's initial deployment to the Mexican border, but a state official said nothing was decided.

Ron Vitiello, the acting deputy commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection, said Brown had declined the initial roles put forward for Guardsmen.

After pledging to send 400 National Guard troops to assist with security at the United States/Mexico border, a report claims California Gov.

Brown's announcement last week did not address what specific jobs the California Guard would and would not do and or answer the thorny question of how state officials would distinguish work related to immigration from other duties.

Talks between the USA and California officials about the duties California troops would perform, according to the Associated Press, soured over the weekend after California officials told the Trump administration they would not participate in vehicle maintenance and other initial jobs across the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

The state informed federal officials it will not allow its troops to fix and repair vehicles, operate remotely-controlled surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol, operate radios and provide 'mission support, ' which can include clerical work, buying gas and handling payroll, according to officials with knowledge of the talks who spoke condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

National Guard officials said Monday that a total of 900 guardsmen have been deployed to the border so far: 650 from Texas, 250 from Arizona, 60 from New Mexico, and none from California.

The Defense Department said Monday the Trump and Brown administrations have not yet reached agreement on the terms of the California National Guard's deployment - and that negotiations continue.

"The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in an emailed statement.

"Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs". That's because California guardsmen are to be sent not only to the border but to the Pacific coast and interior locations "throughout the state", Brown said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. "So, at some point that might come together".

Texas, Arizona and New Mexico have already agreed to the Trump administration's request for National Guard support.
