California Maybe Not taking part in Improved US border security Performance

APNewsBreak: California rejects border duties for troops

Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from President Donald Trump last week after he pledged 400 troops to the Guard's third large-scale border mission since 2006.

Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello says California's governor has determined that some tasks federal officials want the state's National Guard to perform at the U.S. -Mexico border are "unsupportable".

The Brown administration said Monday it's waiting for the federal government to sign the Memorandum of Agreement that California submitted last week. The state originally informed federal officials it will not allow its troops to fix and repair vehicles, operate remotely-controlled surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity to the Border Patrol, operate radios and provide "mission support", which can include clerical work, buying gas and handling payroll, according to officials with knowledge of the talks who spoke condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.

Trump has frequently clashed with Brown over the state's "sanctuary" policies limiting the participation of state and local police in federal immigration enforcement.

Jays-Royals may be postponed due to ice
The Blue Jays had their third postponement in a row, following two rainouts in Cleveland over the weekend. Although played at SkyDome, it was a makeup for a May 7 game rained out at Exhibition Stadium.

He's stayed quiet on the subject other than to issue a letter accompanying California's offer to deploy the National Guard to combat transnational crime - but not participate in any immigration enforcement. "Thank you, Jerry, good move for the safety of our Country!"

Speaking to reporters in Washington, Lt. Gen. Daniel R. Hokanson said Monday that about 650 are deployed in Texas, with close to 250 in Arizona and more than 60 in New Mexico.

But the National Guard is disputing the Associated Press' report. "Operation Guardian Support will enable Del Rio Sector to impede and deny illegal border crossings, maintain situational awareness, and apply the appropriate time-bound response and law enforcement resolution to increase security and achieve operational control of our Nation's borders". But he said US agents would not get the military's help at the border - at least for now.

Pentagon officials said Monday they are still calculating what the troop deployment will cost.
