Governor Gavin Newsom of the U.s. state of California has Monday nearly three-quarters of National Guard troops to the border with Mexico to monitor withdrawn.
California previously had nearly four hundred soldiers along the border with Mexico stationed. A hundred of these soldiers there remained to the drug trafficking by cartels.
Newsom is not necessary that four hundred soldiers of the border guard, and called the notion that the state’s problems with illegal immigrants “political theatre”.
“This whole grenskwestie is a manufactured crisis,” said the Democratic governor at a press conference in Sacramento, the capital of California. “This is political scheming, point. We don’t do this.”
According to Newsom, who in January joined as governor of California, is the number of people that illegally crosses the border at the lowest point in almost fifty years. The border between California and Mexico in the south of the state is about 200 kilometers long.
President Donald Trump has the last months understand additional troops to the U.s. border with Mexico. He also wants to still build a wall between the two countries, but the Democrats are blocking the funding.
