California Agrees to Limited Troop Deployment for Trump's Request

California Agrees to Limited Troop Deployment for Trump's Request

He sent a defiant letter to the Trump administration on Wednesday, saying the additional troops will only supplement the staffing of California's ongoing program to combat transnational crime.

Instead, the Democrat Brown said Wednesday the troops would join an existing program to combat transnational drug crime, firearms smuggling and human trafficking. "This will not be a mission to build a new wall". It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.

In his letter, Brown declared that "there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California", contrary to assertions by some of Trump's supporters.

The number of people caught trying to illegally cross the U.S. -Mexico border past year was the lowest since 1971, according to the federal Department of Homeland Security.

Second, they won't enforce immigration laws, make any immigration arrests, participate in any border wall construction, or be employed in a direct law enforcement role.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey had pledged to send 338 troops to the border, but McGuire said that number could soon increase.

They were frozen on India's request in view of the Punjab National Bank fraud cases. Om Prakash said the agency believed the money in the account was proceeds of crime.

While Texas, Arizona and New Mexico responded enthusiastically, California officials, who have clashed routinely with the Republican federal administration over the past year on issues ranging from environmental regulations to the state's "sanctuary" policies, largely stayed silent.

"There's always a dialogue back and forth between the Defense Department and U.S. Customs and Border Protection", Burwell said.

The federal government must agree to the terms before the troops would be deployed.

In his letter, Brown pointed out that the number of undocumented immigrants apprehended by Border Patrol agents is already the lowest its been in decades.

In a statement, DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman said Secretary Nielsen "is pleased to have the support of all four border governors to help secure our southwest border". Although New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez has - as the Santa Fe New Mexican reports - "been critical in the past of the president's approach to border security and immigration", her office said this week the state is deploying 80 National Guard troops this week and expects to eventually deploy 250. That's why the state and the Guard have long supported this important work and agreed to similar targeted assistance in 2006 under President Bush and in 2010 under President Obama.
