California rejects border duties for troops — APNewsBreak

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan said "state officials have not rejected anything" since Brown proposed a formal agreement Wednesday with the Homeland Security and Defense Departments that prohibits any involvement in immigration. He said Homeland Security officials are "in continuing dialogue and discussion" with state officials and did not rule out an agreement on an even more circumscribed role for the troops.

Trump wants to send up to 4,000 troops to the border and has commitments for about 2,400 from those states and California.

The social justice group Prado is a part of had been critical about sending the National Guard in and Monday they were applauding the governor's alleged decision. The state informed federal officials that its troops will not be allowed to fix vehicles, operate remote surveillance equipment, operate radios, or provide other "mission support" to border agents. He then clarified that the California National Guard had indicated that it would not perform certain missions that the Border Patrol requested, as they "know them to be right now". Brown sent a letter last week offering to send troops to the border - on the condition they don't participate in immigration enforcement - and the next day Trump praised him in an exuberant tweet. President Trump orders troops to border of US 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".

California authorities pushed back Monday on a Trump administration official's claim that Gov. The additional staffing would allow the Guard to support statewide law enforcement operations, Brown said but emphasized the guardsmen would not detain border jumpers or other illegal aliens.

Other border state governors, though, have supported Trump's plans to deploy the National Guard to the border.

Brown's office told Breitbart News later that afternoon that the Associated Press report was "inaccurate".

"Under the federal law Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops, governors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the US government picks up the cost", Military Times reported.

Salesses was clear that the troops deployed to the border states "would not perform law enforcement functions" and would "not be placed in direct contact with personnel coming to the border". Almost 250 were in Arizona, more than 60 in New Mexico and about 650 in Texas.

Salesses, the Pentagon official, said the Border Patrol had asked California to send 237 troops to the agency's San Diego and El Centro sectors, but state officials panned the request.
