California rejects plan for troops at border

California's Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown, who has repeatedly come in President Trump's political crosshairs, received rare praise from the president last week after he agreed to installing 400 troops in the National Guard's third large-scale border mission since 2006.

According to Associated Press sources, Brown would agree to send troops as long as they were not involved in immigration enforcement.

The Brown administration said Monday it's waiting for the federal government to sign the Memorandum of Agreement that California submitted last week. By law, members of the military are prohibited from performing law enforcement functions, such as making arrests.

Brown could make his first public comments on the potential deployment to the Mexican border Tuesday morning when he addresses the National Press Club in Washington.

California has rejected a plan by the federal government to send the state's National Guard troops to the border, two US officials told The Associated Press.

But sources told the AP that it will not provide "mission support" in immigration enforcement.

Other border state governors, though, have supported Trump's plans to deploy the National Guard to the border.

Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello says California's governor has determined that some tasks federal officials want the state's National Guard to perform at the U.S. -Mexico border are "unsupportable". Such duties could include repairing vehicles, monitor surveillance cameras or doing clerical work. So far, funding for Trump's wall proposal has not passed Congress.
