California Pulling National Guard From Border To Wildfires

California Gov.

Gavin Newsom is defying President Donald Trump and pulling National Guard troops from the border to start working on wildfire prevention efforts in the coming weeks.

Huffpost reports that the Guard is moving forward with Newsom’s plan.

That department, also known as Cal Fire, confirmed in a statement that it will start the 11-day training in April for those troops, who have been deployed at the California-Mexico border as part of Trump’s immigration crackdown.
