California’s Governor Says State Will Accept Federal Money but Won’t Enforce Federal Immigration Law

California Gov. Jerry Brown said that while his state would accept federal money for national guard troops to combat transnational crime, those troops would not enforce federal immigration law or help build a southern border wall:

In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Defense Secretary James Mattis, Brown said he was willing to help fight crime but added, “Let’s be crystal clear on the scope of this mission.”

The letter argued that California wasn’t facing a “massive wave of migrants” and notified the administration that the state’s National Guard wouldn’t enforce federal immigration law.

“It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life,” Brown said. “And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.”

Brown’s letter came as thousands of National Guard members deployed to the Mexican border.

Last week, President Donald Trump ordered the Defense and Homeland Security departments to use National Guard troops in order to halt illegal border crossings and drug trafficking.

Trump has continually harped on border security and the need for congressional action:

In a video posted on Monday, Trump blasted a California sanctuary law for allowing the state to release criminal immigrants from jail:

“Every citizen has the right to be protected by federal law, and when politicians in California break those laws, they violate the constitutional rights of their citizens,” Trump said.
