The Latest: US sees room for California pact on border

"And the California National Guard will not be enforcing federal immigration laws".
"Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border". Tyler Houlton said in a tweet that the California governor shares an interest on securing the border with Mexico.
Officials said an Associated Press report that the state rejected the federal government's requests to have California National Guard personnel perform certain tasks near the border was "inaccurate".
They will monitor cameras and sensors, provide aerial support, fix roads and vehicles, do administrative work and clear brush - jobs that don't involve law enforcement and won't put them in harm's way, defense and border officials said Monday.
The Guard had about 900 troops working on the border mission Monday, a number that changes daily, said Lt.
But Brown insisted that California's troops have nothing to do with immigration enforcement.
The anti-immigration president said the National Guard deployment would range from 2,000 to 4,000 troops, and he would "probably" keep many personnel on the border until his wall is built - spelling out a lengthy mission. The officials spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense Integration and Robert Salesses said that the Department of Defense was supporting the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and CBP.
Talks between US and California officials about the duties the California troops would perform soured Friday and over the weekend after state authorities told federal officials that they would not participate in vehicle maintenance and the other jobs outlined for an initial phase across the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, the USA officials said.
"We are in continuing dialogue, discussion with the California National Guard and we'll work closely with Chief Vitiello to see if there's other kinds of responses willing to accept - California would accept..." said Salesses. "We don't know if they are murderers, if they're killers, if they're MS-13".
Brown's office was noncommittal about how numerous 400 additional guardsmen would be sent to the border, The Daily Caller News Foundation previously reported.
"The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in an emailed statement.
Nearly 250 troops from Arizona, 60 from New Mexico and 650 from Texas have deployed - all volunteers, Hokanson said.
It will be up to governors and adjutant generals of each state participating to decide of guard members will carry their personal weapons for self-defense, Hokanson said.
"Your funding for new staffing will allow the Guard to do what it does best: support operations targeting transnational criminal gangs, human traffickers and illegal firearm and drug smugglers along the border, the coast and throughout the state", Brown wrote in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Defense Secretary James Mattis, the Times noted. However, President Trump could cut the California National Guard's federal funding-or end its federal recognition, meaning California guard members could no longer be part of the US military, as Capitol Public Radio reported.
"The governor determined that what we asked for is unsupportable, but we will have other iterations", Ronald Vitiello, U.S. Customs and Border Protection's acting deputy commissioner, told reporters in Washington.
"We've got a signal from the governor that he's not participating", Vitiello said.
The targets included government and private organizations, including internet service providers, officials said. Most traffic within a company or between organisations traverses them. "This is a global threat", Manfra said.
