Governor ‘Moonbeam’ Jerry Brown is sending 400 National Guard troops to the southern U.S. border, but he wants to make it clear it’s not to enforce immigration.
Brown isn’t happy to be in this position, but as California counties are breaking with his ‘sanctuary state’ label, this move is a huge win for the Trump Administration. According to yourcentralvalley.com, Brown had to point this out in a drawn-out statement: ‘Here are the facts: there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California. Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they’ve been in nearly 50 years (and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California).’
Whatever Moonbeam. Here is an excerpt from Jerry Brown’s Statement:
Pursuant to your request, the California National Guard will accept federal funding to add approximately 400 Guard members statewide to supplement the staffing of its ongoing program to combat transnational crime. This program is currently staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 at the California border.
Your funding for new staffing will allow the Guard to do what it does best: support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers along the border, the coast and throughout the state. Combating these criminal threats are priorities for all Americans – Republicans and Democrats. 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.
But let’s be crystal clear on the scope of this mission. This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life. And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.
Hey Jerry, the troops weren’t going down there to do that anyway, they’re there to do the administrative type of jobs to free up the border patrol agents to enforce immigration laws. Hopefully, the media doesn’t make Brown sound like he’s a hero because he’s not.
