Differences involving the US and also California authorities about the responsibilities California troops could work, as stated by the Associated Press, soured during the weekend after California authorities told the Trump government they wouldn't engage in vehicle maintenance and also other initial jobs all over the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

"California Governor Jerry Brown is doing the right thing and sending the National Guard to the Border".

Gov. Jerry Brown, the self-anointed Savior of the Planet whose decades-long policies are destroying the once-Golden State, is obsessed with climate change and wants to ban the sale of fossil fuel cars in California, while President Trump is trying to secure the border.

"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", Military Times reported.

Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense Integration Robert G. Salesses says officials wanted 237 for service in two areas of California with "a set of mission responsibility there that California National Guard has indicated they will not perform".

Trump had initially thanked Brown for agreeing to send the National Guard.

Brown and other state officials, however, have said in recent days there is no massive flow of undocumented immigrants moving from Mexico into the Golden State.

"The short answer is that the omnibus ... funds some new fencing, though far less than Trump had hoped it would", FactCheck.org, a nonpartisan consumer advocacy group, said in a recent blog post of the $1.3 trillion spending bill Trump reluctantly signed last month.

The Associated Press reported the tenuous agreement between the federal government and the state soured over the weekend.

"Guardsman and women will not perform any federal state law enforcement functions; they will not be employed in. missions that place them in direct contact with personnel on the border, nor will they be required to be armed to perform their assigned CPB missions", Hokanson told reporters at a press briefing today. Salesses said that the California Guard would not perform those missions.

Brown has been the only holdout among border state governors, as Texas, New Mexico and Arizona - all led by Republicans - moved quickly to send personnel.

Vitiello said that unlike in Operation Jump Start - when Guard soldiers deployed to the border in 2006 - the soldiers will not be placed in any support roles in which border patrolmen will serve as force protection.

The majority of the military members who have arrived or are headed to the border are National Guard troops from Texas, with roughly 650.

"This is a finite resource, so I can't tell these guys we are going to be working together for the next 10 years; it really depends on what investments that are made to help us achieve what we have been asked to do", Vitiello said. The state informed federal officials that its troops will not be allowed to fix vehicles, operate remote surveillance equipment, operate radios, or provide other "mission support" to border agents. CBP is also looking for support at ports of entry.
