National Guard troops at border so far

California rejects plan to send National Guard troops to Mexico border, AP reports BORDER CHAOS: California BANS TROOPS from Helping Border Patrol Agents

California rejected President Trump's plans to send National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border because the work is considered too closely tied to immigration enforcement, two USA officials told The Associated Press.

Brown could make his first public comments on the potential deployment to the Mexican border Tuesday morning when he addresses the National Press Club in Washington.

Last week, Governor Jerry Brown confirmed that he was willing to deploy upwards of 400 troops to the United States' border with Mexico, but added the service members would be prohibited from aiding federal agents in stemming the flow of people across the border.

According to Associated Press sources, Brown would agree to send troops as long as they were not involved in immigration enforcement.

Assad regime air defenses respond to missile attack over Homs
Syrian news agency SANA stated that "Syrian air defense shot down missiles which violated airspace over Homs". Asked about the incident, an Israeli military spokesman said: " We don't comment on such reports ".

"The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in an emailed statement.

Talks between your US and California officers concerning the obligations California troops could work, as stated by the Associated Press, soured during the weekend following California officers told the Trump government they would not participate in auto maintenance along with also other initial jobs across the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. So far, the other three states appear to be complying with Trump's executive order. 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.

Vitiello said the federal government wanted 237 troops for work in two parts of the state that California "has indicated they will not perform", but he emphasized that California may participate in other ways that must still be worked out. According to one USA official, the California Guard has suggested assigning about 40 troops to marijuana eradication across the state.

Brown last week characterized his decision to contribute troops as a welcome infusion of federally-funded support to fight transnational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers. Almost 250 were in Arizona, more than 60 in New Mexico and about 650 in Texas.
