A Defense Department spokesperson said California has declined to commit more than 200 troops to the effort.

According to two U.S. officials, the initial jobs for those troops include fixing and maintaining vehicles, using remote-control surveillance cameras to report suspicious activity to U.S. Border Patrol agents, operating radios and providing "mission support", which can include clerical work, buying gas and handling payrolls.

"The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in an emailed statement. That's because California guardsmen are to be sent not only to the border but to the Pacific coast and interior locations "throughout the state", Brown said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. "So, at some point that might come together".

Brown last week characterized his choice to donate troops because a welcome infusion of support that was funded to fight multinational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers. Drawing that line will likely prove hard because the Border Patrol combats illegal immigration but also drug smuggling and other crimes.

The Democratic governor cast his decision as a welcome infusion of support paid for by the USA government to fight transnational criminal gangs and drug and firearms smugglers.
