Oregon governor tells Trump she'll refuse order to deploy National Guard to protect our border

You cannot win anything with proggies who love illegal aliens. They defy immigration laws and make up their own rules.
Gov. Brown has vowed to keep Oregon a sanctuary state.
From Newsweek: Governor Kate Brown said she will refuse any order from President Donald Trump to send Oregon’s guard troops down south to the US-Mexico border. 
Trump wants National Guard troops sent to the Mexican border as his effort to build an impenetrable wall stalls because his administration is struggling to secure enough funds from Congress or other sources. He originally said Mexico would pay for the wall, but it has refused.
In a presidential memorandum authorizing the request of deployment of Guards to the border, Trump says U.S. security is “imperiled by a drastic surge of illegal activity”, in particular drug trafficking by gangs and unlawful immigration.
He said it is a “crisis” of “lawlessness” at the southern border.
“If @realDonaldTrump asks me to deploy Oregon Guard troops to the Mexico border, I’ll say no,” tweeted Democratic Gov Brown. “As Commander of Oregon’s Guard, I’m deeply troubled by Trump’s plan to militarize our border.”
She added: “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.”
The National Guard is a reserve force of the U.S. Army. Each state has its own unit of guard troops, which falls under the authority of the governor.
Other governors welcomed President Trump’s decision, including in Texas, which shares a border with Mexico.
“My top priority as governor is ensuring the safety and security of Texans, and securing our southern border has always been essential to that mission,” Texas Governor Gregg Abbott, a Republican, said.
“In my time as governor, Texas has maintained a continuous presence of National Guard members along the border, and we’ve added hundreds of permanent Department of Public Safety troopers to the region.
“Today’s action by the Trump Administration reinforces Texas’ longstanding commitment to secure our southern border and uphold the Rule of Law, and I welcome that support.”
The governor also pointed to previous decisions by the Obama and Bush administrations, in 2010 and 2006 respectively, to use National Guard troops to secure the southern border.

I just can’t stand bully women, not that we have to be subjected to men, we exist and we are, but to defy the order of the president of the nation and compromise the security of millions of people is just too much. There’s this thing that always works, the mighty dollar, hit them in the pocket, little by little start taking away until a compromise is reached, you give I give or I take away.

Don’t “kid” yourself on WHY those democrats on the West Coast want open border Floods, and claim santuary status for their Cities & their State.. Every illegal alien that comes in – can sign up for Federal Benefits that amount to 90% of the alien’s income.. The Flood of Federal Money’s going to these rebelious western states comes from taxes of all the other Mid & eastern states..

One would think that an elected official refusing a Constitutionally mandated or authorized edict would be grounds for immediate prosecution, or at least removal from office,…… and then prosecution.

I’m not too sure the Guard would obey her stand down orders. Who’s to stop them if they decide to go?

“Gov. Brown has vowed to keep Oregon a sanctuary state.”
That’s all the more I vow to never turn over my guns.

First, the President can “nationalize” (call up) the National Guard any time he likes. If I were he, I would do that. I would then follow it up with federal marshals at the Governor’s door. They would lose all their equipment and funding and the Guard there would remain federal until she left office, one way or another.

When the shtf these folks will be running for the hills. they will have betrayed their countryMEN. They will have sold the pawns of their evil into slavery. Their friends won’t trust them. The media will cut them loose to save themselves. Their enemies will converge on them and in the end they will be dealt with in an appropriate manner.

Apparently, one mental patient Brown out West is not enough; Now we have TWO of them in TWO different states! And if some counties of California secede from that once-great State and form the State of Jefferson, No Worries: The Brown shall spread all-around! Kate Brown, affirmative action mental patient governor that she seems to be, has publicly stated her intentions not to enforce Federal Law. This is an on-the-record impeachable offense, but again, No Worries, enough of the State of Oregon seems to have gone LOCO, also. What President Trump should do, in addition to stationing National Guard to… Read more »

trump ought to nationalize the national guard, the same way jfk did in Mississippi, send them to the governor’s home and arrest the stupid bitch for not upholding her oath as governor.

If Kate Brown was told that Lavoy Finicum & the Bundy family were trying to illegally cross the border, she’d not only deploy her state’s troops, she’d fly them to the border herself.
Apparently she didn’t pass her civics class in high school.

Is this woman under arrest yet? She should be. Just to reinforce what I said, the National Guard units are normally under the commend of state Governors. The President can assume that command any time they like. He doesn’t need her “permission”. Does everyone see what’s going on here? These little snots have decided that they are simply going to start their own government and ignore the one they have. That leaves us with the choice of either allowing this, or taking proper action to correct it. States belong to the union. If they wish to secede they can start… Read more »

Legitimate question – is this not a state’s rights issue? Don’t yall anti-gov conspiracy types usually like state gov’t over federal?
