Governor Newsom on Trump Administration’s Plan to Divert Funds for National Guard Wildfire Fighting to Build Border Wall

Sacramento, CA...Governor Gavin Newsom issued the following statement on Sept. 5th following new details emerging on the Trump Administration’s plan to use military construction funds to build a border wall. The plan, which was released this week, will divert $8 million in funding to build the California National Guard’s 146th Airlift Wing flight simulator for C-130J pilots and aircrew members, a critical tool that is used to train and prepare National Guard pilots to provide swift response and assistance during wildfires and other emergencies.




“Instead of focusing on the real threats of wildfires, earthquakes and other natural or man-made disasters, the President is throwing away millions of dollars in critical funds so he can build a giant vanity project that will not make anyone safer. It’s totally backwards, and puts Californians’ safety at risk.”

The 146th Airlift Wing simulator would have trained pilots and aircrew members to fly C-130J planes to enhance their flying skills and reduce their risk during lifesaving and emergency missions in California and while deployed around the globe.

Thank you governor Newsom for actually speaking some sense even though it will fall on deaf ears of Trump’s racist base who get excited for locking innocent people in cages

    The first priority of any nation's military is protection of borders from invasion.

    Lie, most of the monies came from funds approved by voters and income from carbon emissions credits.

      No lie just the truth, the government isn't paying 100 billion for our train and the money that went to the train could have went to buying new planes and fire prevention programs. Now there's no train and we owe 4 billion to the government that we have to pay back because they can see california is a scam.

Building a wall will not make anyone safer?
My grand mother was raped and beaten by an illegal when I was little and didnt know what was going on. She died weeks later.
This Gov is a liar, crimes by illegals are greater then our liberal, bigoted news media tells us.
Get on your computer and search the subject and you might get to the real truth of crimes committed by illegals in this country, especially places near the border.

    So you were told, it's always an illegal that raped a white woman, or brown, black it's the biggest of false claims. Just like my aunt, but later found that too was a lie. It was common then, and still is. But it's only that of fibs. Sounds better than being a prostitute, a sleazy slut, a cheater, or being in the wrong place at the wrong time. An excuse is better than the truth, a better explanation. Therfore a lie makes one look more a victim than the I guess they had it coming. A man would never understand these things. And you are one of them, a naive and easily manipulated man. White men rape,kill and molest on a scale that's well backed by stats and actual documentation way beyond an illegal. Spew all the horse s h I t you want but that's all it is. Baseless, false and idiotic. You're nothing but a racist hillbilly turd, we can blame your upbringing on that one. Thanks mom and dad!

Just think of all the illegal medical and inmate costs Calimexico will save from spending on illegals that can't get here, use that money for training our real citizens and military personnel.
