National Guard Colonel denies rejecting plan to send troops to border

The Trump administration said Monday that California Gov. "The Arizona National Guard will deploy 225 members of the Guard today to support border security measures", the state militia said in a statement.

"This will not be a mission to build a new wall", Brown wrote.

Jerry Brown that California is willing to deploy its National Guard to the border - and elsewhere in the state - to combat transnational crime, the Trump administration said Monday the terms of California's deployment are still under negotiation.

President Donald Trump's administration's initial plan for the Guard deployment involves too much immigration-related work, California said, according to The Associated Press, which cited two US officials with knowledge of the discussions.

Salesses, the Pentagon official, said the Border Patrol had asked California to send 237 troops to the agency's San Diego and El Centro sectors, but state officials panned the request. He was not specific about jobs his troops would or would not perform or how he would distinguish between immigration-related work and going after criminal gangs and drug and gun smugglers.

Republican governors from Arizona, New Mexico and Texas have openly embraced the Trump administration's plans and specific jobs for their troops, as California did in previous Guard deployments.
