After repeatedly tweeting about lax border enforcement, President Trump signed a proclamation to send National Guard troops to the U.S. border with Mexico.
The Trump administration reported on Wednesday that apprehensions of people entering the United States illegally at the southern border jumped dramatically in March.
Until the apparent recent bump, arrests at the Mexico border have been at their lowest level since 1971.
Getting troops to patrol California's border with Mexico may be harder for the president than just signing a proclamation.
Gov. Jerry Brown -- no fan of Trump's policies -- has to sign off on National Guard deployment in the state.
