Texas National Guard Arrives in Del Rio Sector

California Gov. Jerry Brown has pledged 400 troops to the effort by Trump to send up to 4,000 troops to the border.

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.

California rejected President Trump's plans to send National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration enforcement, two USA officials told The Associated Press.

Trump has frequently clashed with Brown over the state's "sanctuary" policies limiting the participation of state and local police in federal immigration enforcement.

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.

According to the Associated Press, state officials notified federal authorities that deployed soldiers will be prohibited from tackling duties seen as cracking down on illegal immigration: including fixing border patrol vehicles, operating surveillance cameras, and monitoring radio transmissions.

Brown's office was noncommittal about how numerous 400 additional guardsmen would be sent to the border, The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported. State insiders with knowledge of the talks spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. Nor has California explained what criteria it would use to distinguish between immigration-related tasks and tracking transnational gangs, human traffickers and drug smugglers.

"California Governor Jerry Brown is doing the right thing and sending the National Guard to the Border".

More than 900 troops were on border already this week: 650 of them in Texas, 60 in New Mexico and about 250 in Arizona.

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

Lawmakers declined to provide Trump the $25 billion his administration is seeking to build hundreds of miles of barriers at the border, and the president this month said the National Guard deployment could be needed until a wall - his signature campaign promise - was in place.
