FILE - This Aug. 18, 2010, file photo shows California National Guard troops, who are part of Task Force Sierra, deployed at the border along with Border Patrol Agents near the California/Mexico border in San Diego. California Gov.

The California National Guard said in a press release that the mission will now run until the end of March 2019.  (John Gibbins/The San Diego Union-Tribune via AP, File)
