Trump hails 'rebellion' by local California lawmakers against state's 'sanctuary' laws

Fake News Media and Democrats Lie Repeatedly About President Trump Calling Illegal Immigrants 'Animals'

"In the immigration context, this means it can't require state or local officials to cooperate with federal immigration authorities", said Ilya Shapiro, a senior fellow in constitutional studies at the libertarian Cato Institute.

City and county officials from across the state who oppose California's sanctuary-state law sat down with President Donald Trump Wednesday to voice their objections to the law, and they got a pep talk from the president who slammed the state for failing to crack down on illegal immigration.

"To me, that's obstruction of justice", President Trump said.

"It's going to take all of us and I think we're ready to take the fight to California, to say enough's enough". "It's a big deal out there, and a lot of people are angry about what happened".

He alluded to a recent push by his administration that parents be separated from their children when families cross illegally into the United States, but blamed Democrats - many of whom have vehemently opposed the practice - for the new policy.

A flashpoint between California and the Trump administration came in February when Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf alerted locals to an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid in northern California.

Gov. Jerry Brown used his Twitter page to accuse Trump of lying about both immigration and the facts of California's sanctuary law. "Just a few weeks later, he was arrested again, this time for murder".

Harris was very concerned with the policy of detaining parents, causing separation from their children. The children are transferred to the custody of Health and Human Services within 48 hours, she said.

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he would soon push for full funding of his promised wall along the US border with Mexico, which could spark budget battles in a Congress fractured over his immigration policy.

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.

De Leon accused Trump of hosting the California officials, most of whom are Republicans, because "he's terrified Republicans will lose control of Congress". "We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed", he said.

"California's Sanctuary laws...release known unsafe criminals into communities across the State", he added.

The round table took place exactly one week after Mr. Trump used a closed-door cabinet meeting to castigate Kirstjen Nielsen, the secretary of homeland security, for failing to do enough to crack down at the border.

Sam Abed, the mayor of Escondido, said before the sanctuary law passed, city officials regularly worked with ICE to see 2,700 illegal immigrant criminals deported, which he attributed to lowering crime rates back to 1980s levels.
