As previously reported by Gateway Pundit, California governor Jerry Brown initially agreed to President Trump’s plan of deploying the National Guard along the swiss-cheese like border between California and Mexico which resulted in rare praise from the President on Twitter:
President Trump thanked Governor Jerry Brown for sending the National Guard to the California-Mexico border. Despite Gov. Brown agreeing to accept federal funds and add about 400 troops, Brown asserted that the deployed troops will only be used to “support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers” and not be used for “enforcing federal immigration laws.” Also in his statement, Gov Brown stated, “This will not be a mission to build a new wall. It will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life.”

Yesterday, we reported that California legislators back-tracked on Brown’s double-sided welcoming of the National Guard as they found it too closely tied to immigration. Today, President Trump is furious and in sharp contrast to the President’s earlier tweet commending Gov. Brown for approving the National Guard, Trump lashed out at the governor derailing him for “not looking for safety and security along their very porous border.” President Trump went further to point out the high crime rate in many parts of California that are in no small part the result of illegals stating, “the high crime rate will only get higher.”
Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border. 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!
