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.
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
