Instead, Brown said the troops would join an existing program to combat transnational drug crime, firearms smuggling and human trafficking.

Trump last week called for thousands of National Guard troops to be sent to the border to help fight illegal immigration.

"Let's be crystal clear on the scope of this mission", Brown wrote in the letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

It also followed series of tweets from Trump criticizing Mexico for not stopping a caravan of Central American migrants from moving northward toward the U.S. -Mexico border. Doug Ducey said 225 members of the state National Guard are heading to the border with Mexico to help the Border Patrol and other federal agencies that help secure the border.

No new California National Guard troops have been sent to the border, according to Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Democratic Gov. Evan Westrup, a spokesman for Brown, suggested the Related Press Monday that state officers are nonetheless reviewing Trump's troop request.

Seeking refuge from persecution and violence in search of a peaceful life "is not a crime", the bishops added.

Trump talked about last week he wishes to ship between 2,000 and 4,000 Nationwide Guard members to the border, issuing a proclamation citing "the lawlessness that continues at our southern border". Texas Governor Greg Abbott has said that some of the troops going to the Texas border will be armed. 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.

Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, the union representing agents, said Guard units could help by freeing agents to do more patrolling to search for smugglers.

Arizona recently deployed its first 225 troops to its border.

It's unclear what operations or missions troops will perform along the border that might require them to carry weapons. Organizers talked about they not at all meant to go to the US border.
