Know what happens when you disobey a direct order from the President of the United States?
Well, it sort of depends on the President. But in the case of Donald Trump, he’s going to tell you exactly what sort of punishment to expect.
And he’s going to be very bold, and very public about announcing that punishment, too.
So, when California Governor Jerry Brown made it clear that National Guard troops in the state essentially have no power to protect our southern border, Trump fired back fast.
After Trump ordered states to send Guard troops to bolster our porous border, Brown issued the following order:
“California National Guard will not enforce immigration laws or participate in the construction of any new border barrier.”
He added that the federal government is paying for this deployment. Wait…so we pay for the action, and you have the gall to tell them what to do?
Unsurprisingly, Trump wasn’t too pleased with this limitation of authority. He knows we need those troops to do their jobs if Americans are to remain safe in their beds at night.
As such, the President took to Twitter and ripped into Brown, saying the federal government won’t pay for troops to go to the border and “do nothing.”
Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy “up to 400 National Guard Troops” to do nothing. The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!

He’s certainly right about needing action because illegal immigration continues to be one of this country’s biggest problems.
He then added another Tweet on Wednesday, mentioning the dire situation in California, and praising the efforts of various local officials in the state who have opposed its sanctuary state status.
There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!

The National Guard troops are there to protect us from dangerous illegal activity, such as drug smuggling and other cartel-related antics.
California has been turned into a war zone in certain spots, and it continues to be a safe haven for terrifying illegal criminals. All this has to stop.
And if it’s going to stop, we have to let border officials and our military do their jobs.
We almost hope California doesn’t obey Trump’s order, though, because it’d be great to see Trump take away more federal money!
