"Let's be clear on the scope of this mission," the Democrat Brown wrote in a letter to the Trump administration. "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."

Instead, Brown said the troops would join an existing program to combat transnational drug crime, firearms smuggling and human trafficking. They would join 250 existing California National Guard troops, including 55 who are at the border.

Trump wants up to 4,000 troops sent to the border to combat illegal immigration and drug trafficking and has already won commitments for about 1,600 from the Republican governors of the other states that border Mexico — Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

The California Guard members may be deployed at the border, the coast and elsewhere statewide, Brown said.

The federal government must agree to the terms before the troops would be deployed.

California deployed troops to the border under former Presidents George W. Bush in 2006 and Barack Obama in 2010.

California’s plan to keep executions partially secret draws media lawsuit .
With the prospect of executions resuming in California, news organizations are suing state prison officials for their plans to conceal some of the lethal injection process from reporters and witnesses, and to pull the curtain if the drugs fail to kill the condemned inmate. The secrecy, under state regulations adopted last month by Gov. Jerry Brown’s Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, “serves no purpose other than suppressing important information about the execution process from the public and the press,” said the suit, filed Wednesday in federal court in San Francisco.
