President Donald Trump on Tuesday took aim at California Gov. Jerry Brown’s decision to limit his state’s National Guard troops’ mission at the border.
“Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border,” the president tweeted. “He cannot come to terms for the National Guard to patrol and protect the Border. The high crime rate will only get higher. Much wanted Wall in San Diego already started!”
Brown said he would not permit soldiers to fully engage in immigration enforcement on the border, which is a big snag in Trump’s plan to bolster military presence at the boundary as he awaits construction of his long-promised wall.
