Differences involving the USA and also California authorities about the responsibilities California troops could work, as stated by the Associated Press, soured during the weekend after California authorities told the Trump government they wouldn't engage in vehicle maintenance and also other initial jobs all over the border in California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas.
The Brown administration said Monday it's waiting for the federal government to sign the Memorandum of Agreement that California submitted last week.
Two U.S. officials discussed the status of ongoing negotiations on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter.
Vitiello said his agency, along with the Pentagon and the National Guard, began looking at using Guard troops a couple of weeks before President Donald Trump's April 4 announcement about their deployment to the border.
But given the virulent context brought about by President Trump's avowed campaign against immigration, Democratic leaders throughout California - including the Democratic candidates for governor - had urged Brown to reject Trump's request for troops.
Silicon Valley investor Tim Draper said he will turn in enough signatures to place his plan to split California into three states on the November ballot.
Brown has been the only holdout among border state governors, as Texas, New Mexico and Arizona - all led by Republicans - moved quickly to send personnel.
Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Homeland Defense Integration Robert G. Salesses said the administration wanted 237 troops for work in two parts of the state that California "has indicated they will not perform". Last week, Governor Brown committed to sending hundreds of guard members to the border to assist with public safety.

"The federal government has not yet responded", Keegan said in an emailed statement.
Governor Brown has stated publicly that he shares our interest in securing our southern border.
"We are in continuing dialogue, discussion with the California National Guard and we'll work closely with Chief Vitiello to see if there's other kinds of responses willing to accept - California would accept..." said Salesses.
Trump wants to send up to 4,000 troops to the border and has commitments for about 2,400 from those states and California.
New government funding for the country would go into "support surgeries targeting prohibited firearm, individual traffickers and multinational gangs and drug smugglers along the border and throughout the country", the correspondence read.
And they insisted they won't make the same mistakes as previous deployments such as Operation Jump Start during the Bush administration, when guard troops were deployed for construction and other forward activities - but were unarmed and had to be protected by Border Patrol agents.
Los Angeles Democrat Kevin de Leon, state senator and candidate for U.S. Senate, said the National Guard would be better used helping recovery efforts in Puerto Rico, and that the California-Mexico border is strong enough. Texas National Guard members are already doing aerial and ground surveillance.
