On Tuesday, Virginia became the latest state that won’t allow its National Guard to participate in the separation of children from their families at the border.
“Today I’m recalling four Virginia National Guard soldiers and one helicopter from Arizona,” Gov. Ralph Northam announced in a press release.
“Virginia will not devote any resource to border enforcement actions that support the inhumane policy of separating children from their parents.”
On Monday, the Republican Governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker, said he’s rescinded his offer to deploy National Guard troops to the border.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and Colorado Governor John Hickelooper also pledged to refuse to send their troops if the White House asks.
