Five Governors Won’t Send National Guard Troops to the Border in Opposition to Separation of Immigrant Families

In opposition to the Trump administration’s practice of separating immigrant families, at least five governors, including two Republicans, say they will not send their National Guard troops to the U.S.-Mexico border.

“Until this policy of separating children from their families has been rescinded, Maryland will not deploy any National Guard resources to the border,” Gov. Larry Hogan tweeted Tuesday. He said he called back four crew members and a helicopter that were stationed in New Mexico.
