Brown presides over America’s only sanctuary state and, is in full denial that there is anything resembling an immigration crisis. Brown will order up 400 National Guard troops in response to President Trump’s request – but he makes it crystal clear that they’re not going to do much of anything.

Brown has written letter to the Feds saying that the problem is limited to “transnational crime” – stuff like criminal gangs, human traffickers, and illegal firearms and drug smugglers.

Brown is correct that these things are part of the problem.

But the solution is controlling our borders – something that Brown is not willing to admit. In fact, the question regarding illegal immigration is this: Is California willing to be part of a solution, or is it emblematic of the problem? If we can’t agree on border enforcement, we aren’t really a country.

Gov. Brown and the state of California is in denial of the consequences of open borders.

Either that, or California doesn’t care. But in addition to the crimes listed by Brown, illegal (and in some cases legal) immigration has drastically changed America.

In Texas, 52 percent of all school students are Hispanic. Now, Texas appears poised to implement a statewide academic standard calling for a “Mexican-American Studies” curriculum. It will officially be called “Ethnic Studies: An Overview of Americans of Mexican Descent.”

You have to wonder what this is all about – probably part of the cult of diversity – and you wonder why the conservative Texas Board of Education would agree to it.

Beyond the changing culture, illegal immigration has drastically affected our schools (infecting them with bilingual education), our hospitals, and our workplaces. Contrary to what Gov. Brown would have us believe, some illegals are not nice. Some commit murders and other crimes and some get drunk and kill people on our roads and highways.

Video: California is answering the president’s call for National Guard troops at the US-Mexico border. Today Gov. Jerry Brown announced that he will send hundreds, but it’s not exactly what the president wants. Stacey Butler reports.

California is hell-bent on looking out for the interests of Mexico & not the United States.

This is a bizarre syndrome that is the subject of a column written by Deroy Murdoch of the National Review Online. He says that virtually anything President Trump is for – Democrats are against, even if they used to support it. Immigration issues are certainly examples of that.

He cites two big issues along those line: (1) Sending troops to the border and (2) the citizenship question that might be on the 2020 Census form.

Murdoch notes that it was fine with Dems when Obama sent troops to the border in May of 2010 and George W. Bush also did in 2006. It was also OK with Dems when there was a citizenship question on the 2000 Census under Bill Clinton.

Likewise, there was a time when all Americans believed we were a sovereign country.

Obviously, that’s not where we are in the state of California – and not in other left-wing states, either. So Gov. Brown will send troops to avoid conflict with the Feds and to take the money – but he makes it clear that the interests of Mexico are his top priority.

Text of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s letter in response to President Trump’s request for troops:

Dear Secretary Nielsen and Secretary Mattis:

Pursuant to your request, the California National Guard will accept federal funding to add approximately 400 Guard members statewide to supplement the staffing of its ongoing program to combat transnational crime. This program is currently staffed by 250 personnel statewide, including 55 at the California border.

Your funding for new staffing will allow the Guard to do what it does best: support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers along the border, the coast and throughout the state. Combating these criminal threats are priorities for all Americans – Republicans and Democrats. That’s why the state and the Guard have long supported this important work and agreed to similar targeted assistance in 2006 under President Bush and in 2010 under President Obama.

But let’s be crystal clear on the scope of this mission. 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. And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws.

Here are the facts: there is no massive wave of migrants pouring into California. Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they’ve been in nearly 50 years (and 85 percent of the apprehensions occurred outside of California).

I agree with the Catholic Bishops who have said that local, state and federal officials should “work collaboratively and prudently in the implementation of this deployment, ensuring that the presence of the National Guard is measured and not disruptive to community life.”
I look forward to working with you on this important effort.

Edmund G. Brown Jr.
