California has agreed to deploy 400 National Guard troops at Trump's request

California Gov. agrees to deploy National Guard troops, but with a twist
"This will not be a mission to build a new wall", Brown wrote.
His decision comes after the Trump administration asked border state governors last week to send National Guard contingents to help defend the U.S. -Mexico border.
"The location of Guard personnel - and number specifically working in support of operations along the border, the coast and elsewhere in the state - will be dictated by the needs on the ground", a spokesperson for the governor's office told The Daily Caller News Foundation in an email.
Trump made the request last week, with the federal government paying the cost of the troop deployment. The president said he wants as many as 4,000 troops deployed, saying they will remain there until a border wall is complete. "What National Guard can do - and again, as you said, this is something Obama and Bush did - is they can support the Border Patrol and free up agents to do the actual patrolling". The Republican governors of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico on Monday committed 1,600 Guard members to the border, giving President Donald Trump numerous troops he requested to fight what he's called a crisis of migrant crossings and crime. "It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life", Brown said in a statement.
Brown specified that not all the troops will head to the U.S. -Mexico border and none will enforce federal immigration enforcement.
The federal government must agree to the terms before the troops would be deployed.
But he emphasized that the troops wouldn't be enforcing federal immigration policies.
He says none of the troops who are being deployed are required to carry guns but that they can do so if they feel the need to protect themselves.
Here are the facts: there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California. He said the program is "currently staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 at the California border".
The letter was addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Defense Secretary James Mattis and posted on Brown's twitter account with the caption: "California responds".
The governor also noted that the state guard "agreed to similar targeted assistance" under the past two presidents. "Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they've been in almost 50 years, and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California".
