Eleven states have ended cooperation with a White House initiative to deploy the National Guard to the US-Mexico border.
Massachusetts, Maryland and North Carolina and Virginia have assets at the border already, which will return.
Seven more states have cancelled cancelled future deployments.
President Trump announced that in April that the National Guard would help support his “zero-tolerance” policy.
But outrage over images and stories of families separated at the border have led to governors backing out.

Eleven US states have cancelled 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 of separating migrant families trying to enter the US.

Initially three states — New York, Massachusetts, and Colorado — pulled their forces from current or planned deployments at the border, but they were soon joined by many more.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
