    California recalls troops

    California Gov. Newsom Mostly Ends State's National Guard Border Deployment


    Packing up and going home.

    2/11/19
    Gov. Gavin Newsom is rescinding former Gov. Jerry Brown's deployment of California National Guard troops to the Mexican border, pulling most of 360 troops off their current missions but leaving some in the area to combat transnational drug smuggling. "The border 'emergency' is a manufactured crisis," Newsom will say during his State of the State address Tuesday morning, according to advance excerpts provided by his office. "And California will not be part of this political theater." California National Guard troops have been deployed at the border since last spring, when Brown gave them what he called a "crystal clear" scope. But the National Guard has been aiding federal efforts along the border by handling duties that otherwise would have had to be performed by U.S. troops and Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, including vehicle maintenance, administrative support and operating cameras on the border.
    Border state governors are growing tired of Trumps bogus "emergency" border charade.

    Earlier this month, New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham ordered the majority of her state's National Guard troops at the border to withdraw.

    Weird how the National Guard listens to governors now, but didn't listen to George Wallace. I don't understand the rules when it comes to the National Guard.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24

    The Alabama national guard was nationalized by the president. President Trump could do the same here and the state adjutant generals would have to follow the president's orders.

    The National Guard is subordinate to a state's governor who can approve or reject federal requests.

    So then why weren't they subject to George Wallace?

    Then why won't he? I'm a little perplexed about what's the difference between these two situations.
