Brown the governor of California, was the last of the Governors to respond to the President’s request to send their National Guard troops to the Mexican boarder. On top of dissing the President’s order by waiting for the last moment to respond, he furthered his opposition by restricting the CA guards to combating criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm smuggling. He adamantly stated that he does not want them involved in stopping the flow of illegal aliens.
Brown has a history of being in opposition to the Trump administration, his most recent defiant act was to try and make California a sanctuary state. Since his brazen move, several cities have revolted against his order. Shortly after Trump started his war on illegal immigration, Brown ordered the state’s police to ignore orders to report illegals to the INS and to refuse to assist in detaining them.
Trump responded to Brown’s terms “Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy ‘up to 400 National Guard Troops’ to do nothing.’ (sic) The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!”.
