On Tuesday, Trump slammed Brown after the governor reportedly rejected terms of the National Guard's deployment to the U.S. -Mexico border. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy.
"Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border", Trump tweeted Tuesday.
Trump tweeted Wednesday morning about California, which has passed a state law limiting cooperation with federal immigration enforcement.
Trump wants thousands of guard troops to help with immigration enforcement until his promised U.S. -Mexico border wall is built.
The Trump administration and the state of California have been engaged in an escalating battle over immigration issues such as the president's bid to strip federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities, counties and states that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
According to the disputed report, California didn't want its personnel fixing vehicles or monitoring surveillance cameras, among other assignments. "I think it just spreads further fear of the border, fear of coming here or to other border areas, when we're struggling to show what a lovely, bicultural community we have", local tour guide Jessy Zamorano said, calling the move "totally unnecessary". "Thank you Jerry, good move for the safety of our Country!"
Vitiello said Guardsmen would most likely not be armed, but individual states might allow the carrying of a weapon in certain missions.
Penguins vs. Flyers: Game 2 prediction
The Flyers and the two-time defending Stanley Cup-champion Penguins were separated by just two points in the regular season. If Toronto doesn't get solid play from their defense and goalie Frederik Andersen, then it may be a short playoff for them.
Gov. Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump last week for pledging 400 troops to the Guard's third large-scale border mission since 2006. That sounds to me like fighting crime. The state has filed more than 30 lawsuits already, and Brown quipped Tuesday that "we have so many lawsuits now that a few more doesn't make any difference". "We're not going to do that", Brown told reporters at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Jenkins later pressed Brown on what he would say to the families of victims of criminal illegal aliens who say their loved ones would still be alive if California cooperated with federal immigration law.
"We are in continuing dialogue - discussion - with the California National Guard and will work closely with Chief Vitiello to see if there's other kinds of responsibilities that California might fill", he said.
"We will have other iterations", Vitiello said. "There is no crisis on the border that warrants sending in the National Guard ..." "It will be an iterative process".
Brown sought to avoid the perception that he had capitulated: Washington pays the bill, Brown retains command of the troops and the Guard's mission will not include stopping illegal border crossings.
Pentagon officials said Monday that they are still calculating what the troop deployment will cost.
