California reached deal with Trump administration on National Guard

Vastavam web: California said on Wednesday it had reached a deal with the Trump administration to provide 400 National Guard troops to combat criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers within the state and at the U.S.-Mexico border.California National Guard troops will not enforce immigration laws or participate in the construction of any new border barrier, the governor’s office said in a statement.

California Governor Jerry Brown has been a staunch opponent of Trump’s efforts to tighten immigration law enforcement and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Brown last year signed a sanctuary law ordering state and local officials not to cooperate with federal immigration agents in certain situations.Currently, 900 National Guard troops have been deployed in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, officials said Monday.
