California has rejected 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, two USA officials told The Associated Press.
Other border state governors, though, have supported Trump's plans to deploy the National Guard to the border. "And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".
"Calling on the National Guard to be deployed will actually increase more abuse on the border", said Benjamin Prado of San Diego's American Friends Service Committee. Brown's agreement and cover letter were an attempt to appease Trump's request for assistance without actually allowing his National Guard to be used for the mission Trump wants those troops: to guard the border and repel unauthorized immigrants until his wall is constructed. President Trump orders troops to border of USA and MexicoKeegan released a statement saying, "the federal government has not yet responded and added that the next step is for the federal government to respond by signing the Memorandum of Agreement".
Those jobs include fixing and maintaining vehicles, using remote-control surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity to USA border patrol agents, operating radios and providing "mission support", which can include clerical work, buying gas and handling payroll, the officials said. The officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

Vitiello added that these activities were similar to those requested of National Guard troops in the other three border states.

They will monitor cameras and sensors, provide aerial support, fix roads and vehicles, do administrative work and clear brush - jobs that don't involve law enforcement and won't put them in harm's way, defense and border officials said Monday.
"Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border". Drawing that line will likely prove hard because the Border Patrol combats illegal immigration but also drug smuggling and other crimes. Texas National Guard members are already doing aerial and ground surveillance.
The Democratic governor cast his decision as a welcome infusion of support paid for by the USA government to fight transnational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers.
Speaking to reporters in Washington, Lt. Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson said Monday that about 650 are deployed in Texas, with close to 250 in Arizona and more than 60 in New Mexico. "Jerry Brown work with the administration and send members of the National Guard to help secure the southern border". "We are in continuing dialogue - discussion - with the California National Guard and will work closely with Chief Vitiello to see if there's other kinds of responsibilities that California might fill". Almost 250 were in Arizona, more than 60 in New Mexico and about 650 in Texas.
