California won't participate in USA border security operation

California rejects plan to send National Guard troops to Mexico border, AP reports

The Trump administration says it will send as many as 4,000 to cope with a jump in illegal crossings, after arrests along the Mexico border hit their highest level in 15 months.

In his agreement, Brown made it clear that California would "accept federal funding to increase the number of personnel supporting ongoing operations of the California National Guard to combat drugs and transnational crime, now staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 near California's southern border".

Mr. Brown faced severe criticism at home after he said last week he would be willing to offer some 400 National Guard troops to President Trump's border surge, under strict conditions.

But given the virulent context brought about by President Trump's avowed campaign against immigration, Democratic leaders throughout California - including the Democratic candidates for governor - had urged Brown to reject Trump's request for troops.

Evan Westrup, a spokesman for the governor, did not immediately answer detailed question about California's rejection of specific guard duties. National Guard lieutenant colonel denies rejecting plan to send troops to border " The federal government has not yet responded.

The Associated Press reported the tenuous agreement between the federal government and the state soured over the weekend.

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan said Monday that the state was awaiting a formal response from the administration and had no additional details beyond the governor's proposed agreement released last week that includes a ban on immigration enforcement. "The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in a statement sent to reporters.

Differences involving the US and also California authorities about the responsibilities California troops could work, as stated by the Associated Press, soured during the weekend after California authorities told the Trump government they wouldn't engage in vehicle maintenance and also other initial jobs all over the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. "At some point that might come together", said Ronald D. Vitiello, acting deputy commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, which oversees both the Border Patrol and the ports of entry. Drawing that line will likely prove hard because the Border Patrol combats illegal immigration but also drug smuggling and other crimes.

In an April 4 memo to the secretary of Homeland Security and the attorney general, President Donald Trump said the troops were needed to curb drugs, gangs and illegal crossings on the USA border with Mexico. Nor has California explained what criteria it would use to distinguish between immigration-related tasks and tracking transnational gangs, human traffickers and drug smugglers. In the presidential memorandum April 4, he said a "drastic surge of illegal activity on the southern border" is threatening national security.

Members of the Arizona National Guard listen to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey on April 9, 2018 at the Papago Park Military Reservation in Phoenix, Arizona.

In his letter, Brown cast the assignment of Guard troops as a continuation of the fight against crime that California supported in 2006 under President Bush and in 2019 under President Obama.
