California rejects proposed border duties for troops, US says

California rejects proposed border duties for troops, US says

Jerry Brown rejected terms of the National Guard’s initial deployment to the Mexican border, but a state official said nothing was decided.

California National Guard spokesman Lt. Col. Thomas Keegan said “state officials have not rejected anything” since Brown proposed a formal agreement Wednesday with the Homeland Security and Defense Departments that prohibits any involvement in immigration.

Homeland Security Department spokesman Tyler Houlton said the federal government was committed to working with Brown and that the California leader shares interest in a secure border with Mexico.

Republican governors from Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have openly embraced the Trump administration’s plans and specific jobs for their troops, as California did in previous Guard deployments.

The Arizona National Guard said last week that its troops will provide air and ground support.
