Gov. Jerry Brown agrees to deploy National Guard troops at Trump's request

In Texas, where Republican Gov. Greg Abbott has pledged to put more than 1,000 Guard members into action, military officials said Tuesday that 300 troops would report to armories this week for preparation and training.

Last week Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced that President Trump would send National Guard troops to the USA southern border.

Third, not all of the 400 troops Brown agreed to accept federal funding for will deploy to the border; some will also deploy elsewhere in the state.

Last week, Defense Secretary James Mattis approved Pentagon funding for 4,000 members of the National Guard, until the end of September.

Under the federal law Trump invoked in his proclamation calling for National Guard troops, governors who send troops retain command and control over their state's Guard members and the US government picks up the cost.

"I don't suppose it's a partisan downside or an id downside", he talked about.

Meanwhile, authorities in Democratic-led California, another border state, has remained mum on any commitment of troops to the border security effort. "You show me somebody who is for drug cartels or human trafficking or this ammunition that's coming over a wide-open and unprotected border here".

New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez's office talked about that larger than 80 troops would deploy later this week. They would join 250 existing California National Guard troops, including 55 who are at the border.

Administration officers have talked about that rising numbers of people being caught on the southern border, whereas in keeping with seasonal traits now, require an instantaneous response.

It's now clear that Brown used that time to negotiate specific conditions under which the California National Guard will deploy. That's why the state and the Guard have long supported this important work and agreed to similar targeted assistance in 2006 under President Bush and in 2010 under President Obama.
