Trump Slams Governor Jerry Brown For Watering Down National Guard Deployment

Jerry Brown and the federal government over the National Guard jerked back toward discord on Thursday, when Trump said he would refuse to pay for a new deployment of troops - just hours after his administration said otherwise.

Gov. Jerry Brown, a Democrat, announced Wednesday evening that his state had reached a deal with the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security to join the president's plan for a military reinforcement of the U.S. Border Patrol on the condition that California troops would abstain from immigration-enforcement duties.

Brown's office said Tuesday that nothing's changed since the governor pledged 400 troops last week and that California is waiting on a response to proposed contract that would include a ban on any activities related to immigration enforcement.

National Guard troops will not perform apprehensions, but instead will offer personnel support, conduct surveillance, fix current border wall/fence and vehicle maintenance. "Final details are being worked out but we are looking forward to the support".

Gareth Bale and Zinedine Zidane's relationship have hit an all-time low but is expected to remain at the Bernabeu next season. If that is the case, though, it will likely involve a sale to a club outside the Premier League.

Trump also took a Thursday morning shot at California's sanctuary state law, which was supported by Brown, thanking the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for its vote this week supporting the federal government's lawsuit challenging the measure. In another tweet Trump called out Brown, denouncing his stance on the state's immigration policies.

"Thank you San Diego County for defending the rule of law and supporting our lawsuit against California's illegal and unconstitutional "Sanctuary" policies", Trump tweeted on Thursday morning. "And who would think in this modern-day age?"

At the U.S. -Mexico border, arrests of illegal crossers fell a year ago to their lowest level since 1971.
