New Mexico Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham, a democrat, also ordered the removal of most of the National Guard troops deployed at her state's border after her Republican predecessor granted the Trump administration's request a year ago, Reuters reported.

During his State of the State address, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on Tuesday said his administration is putting a halt to the highly anticipated high-speed rail that would travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Gov. Gavin Newsom delivers the State of the State Address at the California State Capitol, February 12, 2019.

"Make no mistake about it: Gov. Gavin Newsom's announcement today is not about killing the wasteful High-Speed Rail Project, it is about keeping it very much alive", Carl DeMaio, chairman of Reform California, said in a press statement Tuesday. A revised business plan adopted last year pushed back the completion of the project by four more years and estimated a final cost of $77 billion.

Newsom said in his first State of the State address Tuesday that he has convened a team of the nation's best bankruptcy lawyers and financial experts from the energy sector. Newsom said that work would continue.

Newsom added that while California has "the capacity to complete a high-speed rail link between Merced and Bakersfield", "there simply isn't a path to get from Sacramento to San Diego, let alone from San Francisco to L.A".

"Last week, we heard another president stand up at the State of the Union and offer a vision of an America fundamentally at odds with California values", Newsom said.

"As many of you know, based on my previous comments and comments that I have made as recently as yesterday, I think this whole border issue is manufactured", said the California governor.

High-speed rails have been in the news lately after freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a New York Democrat, proposed building a rail network extensive enough to eliminate air travel. "Overall immigrant apprehensions on the border last year were as low as they've been in almost 50 years". A Guard official said the state's troops have not helped detain anyone.

He appointed Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg to lead a new state commission focused on California's homeless crisis.

Newsom criticized "fear-mongering that's coming out of the White House", likening Trump's rhetoric on immigrants to George W. Bush opposing same-sex marriage when he was president, during an era when LGBT people had less public support and fewer civil protections.

"I don't intend to file suit against all 47, but I'm not going to preside over neglect and denial", he said during his address".

"Newsom also promised to have a plan within 60 days for dealing with the recent bankruptcy filing by Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. after years of devastating wildfires".

Newsom hedged his bets a little, indicating that he would seek more funding: "Abandoning high-speed rail entirely means we will have wasted billions and billions of dollars with nothing but broken promises, partially filled commitments and lawsuits to show for it".
