Two U.S. officers say California has rejected the federal authorities’s preliminary plans to ship the state’s Nationwide Guard troops to the border as a result of the work is taken into account too carefully tied to immigration enforcement.
California advised federal officers late final week it is not going to enable its troops to repair and restore automobiles, function remotely-controlled surveillance cameras and carry out different duties underneath a Trump plan to ship troops to the border.
Two U.S. officers mentioned the standing of ongoing negotiations on situation of anonymity as a result of they weren’t approved to debate the matter.
California Gov. Jerry Brown elicited uncommon and effusive reward from President Donald Trump when he pledged 400 troops to the border final week.
However the Democratic chief conditioned his help on troops having nothing to do with immigration enforcement.
