Newsom's announcement comes as a rebuke of Trump's order to strengthen military enforcement at the USA southern border, especially after the president said that illegal migrants and refugees coming over the border from Central America are threatening America's national security.

In her own statement, Lujan Grisham said New Mexico would "not take part in the president's charade of border fear-mongering by misusing our diligent National Guard troops". 110 members are expected to work with the California Department of Forestry and Fire; 100 members will be transferred to intelligence operations against drug cartels. Evidently, the governor will condemn the "political theater" over Trump's border wall, and he will also pull California's 360 troopers back from the border so they can focus on "real threats" like managing wildfires throughout the state.

Newsom's office said he will sign an executive order that would end the special border deployment his predecessor Gov.

The White House at the time had requested governors of border states to aid in security efforts by deploying their National Guard troops.

This was in response to the fact that little progress is being made between Democrats and Republicans on the Hill, in terms of reaching an agreement that would help fund Trump's border wall.

Trump and Democrats in Congress have been engaged in a contentious battle over his proposed U.S./Mexico border wall, which would extend all the way from the Pacific Ocean to East Texas.

"We are living in a state and in a nation where people that are here without documentation commit crimes at a substantially lower level than native-born citizens".

Brown said he agreed to the mission after persuading the federal government to commit to paying for it and kept the guard members under the direction of the state.

Trump's demand for $5.7 billion United States to help build a wall led to a 35-day partial USA government shutdown that ended last month without the president getting wall funding. They can not act as a police force or make arrests.

Jerry Brown (above right) originally approved the mission through the end of March, but qualified that the state's troops "will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".

Newsom, who is just a month into his governorship, has held up the state as an antidote to what he's characterized as a corrupt Washington. And on his first full day in office last month, Newsom said he had directed California National Guard Adjutant General David Baldwin to prepare "a menu of options".
