California Gov. agrees to deploy National Guard troops, but with a twist

"President Trump was right, we need to build a wall", McMaster said.

National Guard troops were also sent to the border in the past week after reports that a caravan of over 1,000 immigrants were headed from Central America to the USA through Mexico.

"Let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission", Brown wrote in a letter that accompanied the Memorandum of Agreement he submitted Wednesday to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

The Senate said that the 400 wouldbe in addition to 250 already involved in the program, including fifty five members stationed in the us's southern border.

Brown and other leaders in California have repeatedly fought Trump over immigration policy.

No new California National Guard troops have been sent to the border, according to Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Democratic Gov.

Further north, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, a Democrat, said on Twitter that she would decline any request to send troops, saying she was "deeply troubled" by Trump's plan to militarize the border.

The federal government must agree to California's terms before the troops would be deployed. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing agents, said Guard units could help by freeing agents to do more patrolling to search for smugglers.

Apprehensions are nonetheless correctly beneath their historic traits all through the phrases of former presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, every of whom moreover deployed the Guard to the border.

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office talked about that larger than 80 troops would deploy later this week. Texas Governor Greg Abbott has said that some of the troops going to the Texas border will be armed.

And the governor insisted in his letter that Trump's public pronouncements on border threats were misguided - pointing to statistics that show the number of detained immigrants in California is at its lowest point in almost 50 years.

The April 7 letter, addressed to people in Mexico and the United States and the presidents of both countries, echoed sentiments of US border bishops by saying the frontier between the two countries "is not a war zone", but rather an area "called to be an example of social connection and joint responsibility".

"America has always been a melting pot which is good but I think protection, government and taxes is important".
