11 states pull their national guard from border patrol

Business Insider - Eleven US states have canceled agreements to send members of the National Guard to the US-Mexico border as part of a growing backlash over the Trump administration's policy separating migrant families that illegally enter the US.

New York, Massachusetts, and Colorado were the first to pull their forces from current or planned deployments at the border, and they were soon joined by many more.

Most are states with a Democratic governor. Two — Massachusetts and Maryland — have Republicans in charge.
