Gov. Gavin Newsom pulling National Guard from California border with Mexico
Isn’t that Nancy Pelosi’s nephew? Yep. What is it with this political ruling class family and their lack of interest on the building a wall at the southern border let alone not allowing the National Guard to secure it by presidential directive? We have the National Guard for a reason folks. But I guess you should investigate yourself.
Of course, the governors of states can do whatever they want — it’s their state. But this is just putting Californians in harms way for the coming caravan INVASION. Not cool.
Maybe the new governor should take a tour of the southern border with ICE Agents and Border Patrol to see what is actually going on that Senior Democrat Steny Hoyer had to actually come out and say that ‘strategic investment’ is needed.

The 360 National Guard troops in California will be redeployed to fight wildfires, expand the state’s Drug Task Force and collect intelligence on drug cartels, Newsom will announce.
Newsom’s decision comes a week after New Mexico Gov. Michelle Grisham ordered most of her state’s National Guard troops back from the border, citing President Donald Trump’s “border fear-mongering” as the only reason for their deployment.
Former California Gov. Jerry Brown agreed to the deployment of the National Guard troops last year, but said they would not be used to enforce immigration laws. Brown, Newsom and Grisham are Democrats.
“The border ’emergency’ is a manufactured crisis,” Newsom will say in his State of the State address on Tuesday, according to prepared marks. “And California will not be part of this political theater.
“Which is why I have given the National Guard a new mission,” he continued. “They will refocus on the real threats facing our state.”
In April 2018, Trump authorized up to 4,000 National Guard troops to be deployed in the four border states of Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and California. After California removes the 360 troops, 1,145 will remain in Texas and 580 in Arizona.
