SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Jerry Brown won't be deploying National Guard troops to the Mexican border like Texas is doing in response to an influx of immigrants, a state military official said Monday.

Capt. Will Martin of the California Military Department said the Democratic governor has no plans to send the California National Guard to the southern border.

"The border shared by Texas and Mexico presents a significantly different set of considerations than those presented by the border shared by California and Mexico," Martin said in a statement.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has been a vocal critic of the White House's response to the border crisis as he considers a second presidential run. He is deploying up to 1,000 troops over the next month at an estimated cost of $12 million per month.

Perry has said for years that the federal government has failed to secure the border and suggested Monday that criminals were exploiting a surge of children pouring into the U.S. illegally.

Since October, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children and teenagers have entered the U.S. illegally, most of them from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, where rampant gang violence and intense poverty have driven tens of thousands of people outside their borders.

Now there's a shocker.

Ol' Jerry Brown won't protect his state from marauders.   :smokin:
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

I'll bet Rick Perry is just loving this.  The National Guard should put up signs saying "California accepting ALL illegal aliens.  It will make the Guards job much easier.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
