No Agreement Yet Between California, Defense Department On Terms For National Guard Deployment

But the Democratic leader conditioned his support on troops having nothing to do with immigration enforcement.

The troops in California are under the command of Gov.

State and federal officials sent conflicting messages.

"Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs". DHS and our federal partners are committed to working with the Governor to mobilize the California National Guard to assist DHS' frontline personnel in our vital missions. "They will not perform law enforcement functions", reiterated Bob Salesses, deputy assistant secretary of defense for Homeland Defense Integration and Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA).

De Leon called Trump's call for troops at the border a "manufactured crisis", and said, "We are not experiencing an inordinate influx of immigrants, as officials in the Trump Administration have claimed, citing a caravan of immigrants coming from Central America". The request involved about 237 Guard members going to the El Centro and San Diego border sectors with specific missions.

President Donald Trump's administration's initial plan for the Guard deployment involves too much immigration-related work, California said, according to The Associated Press, which cited two USA officials with knowledge of the discussions.

In addition, National Guard members will provide surveillance, engineering, administrative and mechanical support to border agents, he said. Other Republican governors not located on the border have also said they would support the effort with troops including Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds. He said that federal authorities were grateful for the support that they have, and that they would continue the discussion with California for future phases of the operation to "see if those fit better with sort of the results as we know them now".

Brown's office was noncommittal about how numerous 400 additional guardsmen would be sent to the border, The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. Keegan 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". Jerry Brown, D, who last week said he would send up to 400 personnel in a limited role.

While noting that the number changes daily, Hokanson said his latest figures show more than 900 troops have deployed for the mission: 250 in Arizona, just over 60 in New Mexico, and around 650 in Texas. According to the three officials, there are not yet any troops on the southern border in California. "I do believe that the governor tried to find a way to make sure we address critical needs and concerns that California would have when it comes to protecting our border", said Becerra at a press conference Monday afternoon. That's because California guardsmen are to be sent not only to the border but to the Pacific coast and interior locations "throughout the state", Brown said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
