BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker called the treatment of migrant children and families at the border "inhumane," and says he's cancelling plans to send a Massachusetts National Guard crew to the US-Mexico border.
"I said two weeks ago that I did not support the decision of the Trump administration to separate kids," Baker told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Kim Tunnicliffe. "I think it's cruel and inhumane, and we told the National Guard to hold steady and to not go down to the border, period. So we will not be supporting that initiative."

The governor announced earlier this month that he would send a military chopper, a pilot, and two analysts to assist President Trump's mission to curb illegal border crossings. The mission chopper was expected to fly down by the end of June.
