Gov. Gavin Newsom is pulling California National Guard troops from the border, calling the deployment "political theater."
Newsom signed the order on Monday to rescind authorization for California Guard troops at the border.
Former Gov. Jerry Brown had reluctantly ordered Guard troops to the border under pressure from the Trump administration, and specified last April that the deployment of California service members "will not be a mission to round up women and children or detain people escaping violence and seeking a better life."
