Bitter California Withholds Assistance as National Guard Goes to US-Mexico Border
In today's news, the state of California is pissy and won't comply with the federal government. So, regular Tuesday. The Trump administration recently requested National Guard members to man the border. Because, as Trump has been trying to tell California, it's feeble down there. Something I'm sure Jerry Brown has heard plenty in the course of his lifetime, regarding all manner of... things. Penis joke. Sorry, they just come to me.
A few ignored requests and self-righteous squabbles later and we're here. Governor Brown is mid-PMS. The National Guard plans are moving forward. Without California.
National Guard members have begun arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border as requested last week by President Trump, but California's Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown is still mum on whether his state will participate in the deployment.
California has frequently fought with the Trump administration over illegal immigration, with one San Diego lawmaker saying that it's now a "rogue state."
Other states have stepped up to the plate while California throws its sippy cup on the floor. Arizona, Texas, and New Mexico are reportedly sending Guard members to the border. There's still time for Jerry Brown to participate, but don't hold your breath. Unless you'd rather suffocate than inhale California's noxious fumes. The state has a habit of fighting golden tooth and jagged nail when it comes to participating with the Trump (see California Gov. Jerry Brown Pens Self Righteous Letter to Trump. Lectures America on Walls.).
While the California-Trump feud rages on, the border is still in need of security. Specifically walling. Some of us are still holding onto hope we'll see the promised wall soon. But in the meantime, a couple thousand National Guard members is nice too.
