National Guard Troops
California and the Trump administration are still at odds over the terms of deploying the National Guard to the border. A California National Guard spokesman yesterday said “state officials have not rejected anything” since Governor Brown last week agreed to deploy 400 troops as long as there’s no involvement with immigration. Meanwhile, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection official said Brown rejected what they asked for, but they’ll be back with a new proposal. Finally, a Homeland Security Department spokesperson says the federal government is committed to working with Brown on securing the border.
