BORDER CHAOS: California BANS TROOPS from Helping Border Patrol Agents

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

Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection Deputy Commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello says troops that work at border crossings will perform cargo inspections that are not viewable by the general public.

Some National Guard troops deployed to the U.S. -Mexico will be allowed to carry weapons with them - but they will not, under any circumstances, be allowed to actually enforce immigration laws nor will they be put in a position where they're likely to encounter illegal immigrants, top administration officials said Monday.

Talks between the USA and California officials about the duties California troops would perform, according to the Associated Press, soured over the weekend after California officials told the Trump administration they would not participate in vehicle maintenance and other initial jobs across the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.

Stoke City-West Ham United Preview
Stoke, meanwhile, are four points from safety heading into the weekend and will be aiming to avoid a fifth successive defeat. In his first season, the midfielder showed some promise and played 28 games for Slaven Bilic's side in the Premier League.

Officials said that Operation Guardian Support is created to increase deterrence and border security capabilities.

The Associated Press reports that California told federal officials it would not allow its troops to fix and repair vehicles, operate remotely controlled surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity, operate radios or provide "mission support".

"This will not be a mission to build a new wall", Brown said in a statement last week.

Brown was clear last week that California troops will help go after drugs, guns and criminal gangs, but not immigrants. State insiders with knowledge of the talks spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter. Drawing that line will likely prove hard because the Border Patrol combats illegal immigration but also drug smuggling and other crimes.

Brown last week characterized his decision to contribute troops as a welcome infusion of federally-funded support to fight transnational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers.
