Trump Stokes California's Sanctuary Revolt

Trump Stokes California's Sanctuary Revolt

"Each of you has bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws", Trump told the group. The administration filed suit in March over California's so-called sanctuary laws restricting local law enforcement officers from notifying federal immigration agents when people who are undocumented are detained and about to be released.

"I know what you're going through right now with families is very tough, but those are the bad laws that the Democrats gave us", Mr. Trump said. "You've gone through a lot, too, although it's become quite popular what you do".

President Trump praises cities, counties for backing administration's lawsuit over California sanctuary laws; reaction from Dave Brown, former senior adviser to Sen.

Among them are Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, a Lake Elsinore Republican who has introduced legislation to let counties opt out of the state law; Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel, and San Diego County Supervisor Kristin Gaspar. The roundtable featured state and federal officials who oppose the policies protecting immigrants living in the US illegally.

In addition to being a sanctuary state, California has more than 500 sanctuary cities, including Oakland and San Francisco.

"The concept (of sanctuary laws) that we are even talking about is so ridiculous, " the president said.

Trump assured Edgar that "we're with you 100 percent" and said "if it's at all possible" he would like to help the city fight the lawsuit.

"I mean, you talk about obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California, Jeff", Trump said to Sessions who didn't respond.

Trump made reference to Schaaf on Wednesday and urged Sessions to consider an obstruction of justice charge for her.

Last month Trump threatened to shut down the federal government in September if Congress did not provide more funding for his wall.

However, the governor sent military personnel on the condition that "the California National Guard will not enforce immigration laws or participate in the construction of any new border barrier".

"My Administration stands in solidarity with the courageous citizens in Orange County defending their rights against California's illegal and unconstitutional Sanctuary policies", he tweeted.

In a Facebook post on Friday, Mayor Abed wrote that he was "honored to be invited to the White House to meet President Trump" and "proud to share Escondido's successful policies to keep our community safe under the rule of law". "All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders".
