California Gov. Gavin Newsom to recall troops from Mexico border

Slamming President Donald Trump for his use of "political theater", Gov. Gavin Newsom has announced that he is withdrawing National Guard troops from California's southern border with Mexico in order to "refocus on the real threats our state is facing".

The announcement comes the same day Newsome announced the withdrawal of National Guard Troops from the border. He similarly ordered the troops to focus on combating transnational crime. The California governor will only leave around 100 troops to remain at the border.

Newsom's general order reassigns more than 200 troops to support wildfire prevention efforts and expand operations to counter drugs and cartels across California, with a group of forces trained in spotting narcotics to be stationed at the state's worldwide points of entry.

In his upcoming State of the State address on Tuesday, the Democratic governor will say he is giving the National Guard a new mission so they do not participate in "political theater", the Los Angeles Times newspaper and other media reported. The efforts to counter the Trump Administration's immigration enforcement increased last summer after outcry over the separating of families at the border.

Trump has deployed an extra 3,750 USA troops on the border this month.

The move was a rebuke to President Donald Trump, who won election in 2016 partly on a populist pledge to build a wall on the southern US border which he said in his campaign Mexico would pay for.

The state's original order to send troops to the border, signed by Gov.

Gov. Gavin Newsom is planning to remove more than 250 U.S. National Guard troops from the U.S. -Mexico border, a decision applauded Monday by a San Diego lawmaker. The troops were deployed by her Republican predecessor, Susana Martinez, past year at Trump's request. However, I recognize and appreciate the legitimate concerns of residents and officials in southwestern New Mexico, particularly Hidalgo County, who have asked for our assistance, as migrants and asylum-seekers continue to appear at their doorstep.

Trump's demand for $5.7 billion USA to help build a wall led to a 35-day partial U.S. government shutdown that ended last month without the president getting wall funding.

Just a month into his governorship of the nation's most populous state, Newsom has sparred with Trump on immigration and other issues. The governor's office said the troops will be pulled back no later than March 31.

Brown also ordered that the guard members not enforce immigration laws or participate in the building of a border barrier. "However, there is a gray area", Baldwin said. Grisham said there is no overwhelming national security crisis at the border.
