Pictured: Members of the Arizona National Guard
ㅤ"California has rejected a preliminary federal plan for the state’s National Guard troops deployed to the border because it entails too much support for immigration enforcement, according to U.S. officials."
ㅤô¿ô …It makes no sense to deport illegal immigrants while doing nothing to prevent more from entering the country.

ㅤThe Republican governors of the border states of Arizona and New Mexico also welcomed deployment of the guard along the southwest border as a matter of public safety, but it was unclear how Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown would respond to Trump’s call.”
ㅤô¿ô …I give Jerry Brown credit for being slightly smarter than the governor of Oregon.

ㅤ’Given the numbers we had last month, they just came out, 50,000 in April is the number that we interdicted or otherwise was inadmissible. That is a 200 percent increase from March of 2017.
