WEST COAST CHAOS: Governor REFUSES to Send National Guard to Border

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.05.18

The Governor of Oregon flat-out refused to send her National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border Thursday, saying she would simply “say no” if President Trump asked to deploy troops stationed in her state.

Democratic Oregon Governor Kate Brown publicly bucked the Trump administration’s recent announcement that the White House plans to deploy the US National Guard to the southern border; saying the troops will remain until “proper” security could be enforced.

“If @realDonaldTrump asks me to deploy Oregon Guard troops to the Mexico border, I’ll say no. As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border,” she posted on social media.

“There’s been no outreach by the President or federal officials, and I have no intention of allowing Oregon’s guard troops to be used to distract from his troubles in Washington,” she added.
