California Gov., Gavin Newsom is scheduled to pull several hundred National guard troops from the state border with Mexico on Monday in an apparent rebuff to President Donald Trump characterization of the region under siege by Central American refugees and migrants reports.

The move comes in spite of his previous agreement, together with other past and current border state governors to send troops to the border in the trump-demand management. The former California Gov. Jerry Brown, originally, the mission was approved by the end of March, but qualified in that the state of his troops, “not Federal immigration laws to enforce.”

Newsom’s plan calls for the national guard to start immediately to do with the withdrawal of troops, but still give it until the end of March. According to excerpts from his Tuesday state of the state address, he made the “edge of the urgency of” a “crisis,” and say that “California is part of this political theater.”


Newsom, the order will require around 110 national guard troops to help the state prepare for their next forest fire season, while a further 100 members specifically on the fight against TRANS-national crime will be provided, according to extracts of his speech. A spokesman for Newsom said his office is separately reported on the request of Federal funds for the expansion of the state’s counterdrug task force program, The Los Angeles Times.


California has repeatedly style itself as a flagship-resistance state of the Trump administration’s policies. Newsom, who is only a month into his governorship, the state as an antidote to what he characterized as a corrupt Washington, a message he is likely trying to convey, in his state of the state speech on Tuesday.
