Governor vows to refuse Trump’s call for National Guard deployment

President Donald Trump this week announced his intention to deploy members of the National Guard to the southern U.S. border in the near future. Unlike the active branches of the military, however, such a plan must be conducted in coordination with the nation’s governors.

At least one governor has already indicated that she will refuse any demand for her state’s reserve military force to be used for the border security mission.

In a tweet Wednesday, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown revealed that she would “say no” to the request.

“As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border,” she wrote.
