California Governor Will Pull Most National Guard Troops From Border

California Governor To Pull National Guard Troops From U.S.-Mexico Border: 'This Is Our Answer To The White House—No More Division' California governor to draw down guard troops at border

Gavin Newsom ordered the withdrawal of most of the National Guard troops now deployed at the state's southern border in a public rebuke to President Donald Trump.

About 360 guardsmen are now stationed near the border in California, though the number changes from day to day, Newsom said.

100 troops for intelligence operations targeting drug cartels.

Aside from state National Guards, the president has ordered thousands of active-duty troops to the border.

Under a "general order" that Mr. Newsom plans to sign on Monday, 110 California National Guard troops will be redirected to support the state's central fire agency, Cal Fire, and another 100 will work on statewide "intelligence operations" aimed at global criminal drug gangs.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is rescinding former Gov.

Newsom - who has quickly positioned himself as the progressive adversary to Trump - argues that there is no "crisis" at the southern border, and wants to use National Guard troops for other missions.

According to excerpts of a speech released by his office, Newsom is expected to say: "The border "emergency" is a manufactured crisis, and California will not be part of this political theater". The efforts to counter the Trump Administration's immigration enforcement increased last summer after outcry over the separating of families at the border.

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.

At least 150 troops to expand the California National Guard's statewide Counterdrug Task Force - if the Trump administration's Department of Defense agrees to fund the expansion.

"We are living in a state and in a nation where people that are here without documentation commit crimes at a substantially lower level than native-born citizens". The troops have remained at the border for 10 months. The troops were deployed by her Republican predecessor, Susana Martinez, previous year at Trump's request. Every president since Ronald Reagan has called on the National Guard for limited, temporary missions along the frontier.

"This will not be a mission to build a new wall", Brown wrote at the time in a letter to Trump administration officials. The governor's office said the troops will be pulled back no later than March 31. "And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".
