California Democrat Governor Mr Gavin Newsom announced that his state considers the ‘emergency’ at the border as defined by US President Donald Trump is nothing but ‘a manufactured crisis’ and claims he will withdraw several hundred National Guard troops.
Excerpts released by his office of the new governor’s planned State of the State address will have him say that Mr Trump’s border emergency is a ‘manufactured crisis, and California will not be part of this political theater.’
The original mission National Guard mission, formerly approved by the previous California Governor, Mr Jerry Brown, was to end March 31. Mr Newsom plans not to extend it but instead to immediately begin withdrawing troops.
