I see a lot of people applauding the governors of Maryland, Virginia, Massachusetts and North Carolina for pulling their National Guard troops from enforcing the Trump Administration’s policy of family separation among people crossing the Mexican border without permission. In addition, several other governors have said they won’t send troops to the border. All in all, some 11 states have repudiated the policy.
