Oregon Gov. Kate Brown recently took to social media to announce that she plans on defying President Trump should he send out the order to send National Guard members down to the U.S.-Mexico border.

This is all in response to the “Caravan” of illegals headed for the border that want to enter our country illegally.

The Free Beacon is reporting:

Gov. Kate Brown announced her intention on Twitter, saying she is “deeply troubled” by the Trump administration’s plan to “militarize” the country’s southern border with Mexico. Her tweet came after Trump signed a presidential memorandum seeking to address a surge of “illegal activity” on America’s southern border by deploying the military.

The governor clarified in a subsequent tweet that the federal government had not made any requests for National Guard deployment, writing that her announcement was meant to serve as a preemptive declaration of resistance. Brown also took a shot at the president, saying she had no “intention of allowing” the Oregon National Guard to be used as a distraction from the commander in chief’s “troubles” in Washington, D.C.

Trump’s proclamation comes as U.S. Customs and Border Protection has reported a surge in the apprehension of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the U.S.-Mexico border. In February 2018, the agency reported apprehending 36,695 individuals attempting to make an illegal border crossing, up from 23,555 in the same month of the previous year.

The president’s actions mimic those taken by his predecessors. In 2006, President George W. Bush sent 6,000 National Guard troops to serve in a support capacity, helping with fence installation and training new border agents. In 2010, President Barack Obama dispatched 1,200 members of the National Guard to enforce border security after a string of violent incidents.

The situation unfolding at the border is not the time to be partisan, as the large crowd coming our direction poses a direct threat to national security.

Right now, Gov. Brown needs to put aside her political leanings and put the country and it’s security needs above her own agenda.

Hopefully, if that order needs to be given, she will change her mind and do the right thing to keep Americans safe. Failure to do so could have massive repercussions on her reelection in the future.
