  • California governor to draw down National Guard troops at border

With the deadline to prevent another partial government shutdown over border security talks just days away, California Governor Gavin Newsom has announced plans to pull hundreds of National Guard troops from the state's southern border with Mexico in a clear rejection of the Trump administration's claims of security crisis.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Newsom is expected to say, "The border "emergency" is a manufactured crisis".

Newsom's move comes on the heels of New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham, also a Democrat, pulling back her state's troops from the U.S. -Mexico border. The two state's former governors agreed to send troops to the border last April at the Trump administration's request along with Texas and Arizona. She withdrew most of her state's National Guard members from the border.

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". At least five governors recalled troops or withheld resources. The California governor will only leave around 100 troops to remain at the border.

Trump's demand for $5.7 billion United States to help build a wall led to a 35-day partial USA government shutdown that ended last month without the president getting wall funding. However, I recognize and appreciate the legitimate concerns of residents and officials in southwestern New Mexico, particularly Hidalgo County, who have asked for our assistance, as migrants and asylum-seekers continue to appear at their doorstep.

Thousands of families have since been released into the San Diego area with nowhere to go, forcing nonprofits in the region to step up and offer temporary shelter. He made clear his intention to challenge Trump on border and immigration policy, and there is no indication that this will be anything but wildly popular in California.

The Times quoted excerpts from Newsom's State of the State address, which he will give on Tuesday, to illustrate Newsom's hostility to President Trump. Another 110 will be assigned to wildfire preparation duty. The governor's office says some of these troops who are "specially trained counter-narcotic screeners" will be deployed to California ports of entry - both at the Mexican border and elsewhere.

But the National Guard has been aiding federal efforts along the border by handling duties that otherwise would have had to be performed by US troops and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including vehicle maintenance, administrative support and operating cameras on the border.
