Trump Announced Federal Government Will Not Be Paying For Governor Brown’s Charade

President Donald Trump made an announcement Thursday that the federal government is not willing to pay for California’s National Guard soldiers to go to the border and “do nothing.”

California Gov. Jerry Brown was the last of the U.S.-Mexico border state governors to reply to Trump’s demand for personnel to help in border security.

Brown issued an order Wednesday, narrowing the mission of his troops to fighting criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers.

“California National Guard will not enforce immigration laws or participate in the construction of any new border barrier,” Brown’s order specified. He further noted that the federal government had agreed to pay for the deployment.

When making his request for National Guard soldiers for border security earlier this month, Trump categorized stopping the flow of illegal immigrants as one of the leading reasons for the request, additionally to fighting against drug smuggling and gang activity.

On Thursday, Trump tweeted his response to Brown’s deployment order, “Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy ‘up to 400 National Guard Troops’ to do nothing.’ The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!”

In another tweet on Wednesday, Trump extolled the efforts of local officials in California who have come out in opposition to making it a sanctuary state.

“There is a Revolution going on in California,” Trump wrote. “Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!”

San Diego County’s board of supervisors voted Tuesday to submit a court briefing siding with the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California’s sanctuary state law.
“Public safety is our No. 1 priority,” San Diego Board Supervisor Kristin Gaspar said. “Here in San Diego, it’s important to note how our law enforcement’s hands are being tied by SB 54.”

The suit challenges Senate Bill 54, or the “California Values Act,” which mandates a limit of cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.

Last month, Orange County — located nearby north of San Diego County — also voted to join the Trump administration’s suit against SB 54.

“We cannot allow this to happen in Orange County and we need to protect our families and our homes here in Orange County,” Board Supervisor Michelle Park Steel said of the law. “And that means bolstering our cooperation with federal immigration enforcement and stopping our county from becoming a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants.”

Steele also launched a resolution in opposition to the sanctuary state law.

“States cannot simply opt out of federal laws they don’t like,” Steele said. “If tomorrow California decided that the First Amendment was a nuisance and passed legislation to restrict this constitutional right, Americans wouldn’t accept the new law.”
