California governor slams Trump for 'lying' about immigration at 'sanctuary city' roundtable

17 May 2018

President Trump blasted California's sanctuary state law for providing safe haven for illegal immigrant drug dealers, gang members, and "some of the most vicious and violent offenders on earth", pledging to redouble his administration's efforts to deport illegal immigrants who commit crimes. "We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed".

"It's a disgrace", Mims said about her department's inability to work with federal agents.

When attendees blasted Brown, who referred to anti-sanctuary politicians as "low-life" politicians, for not meeting with them, Trump said that "somebody said he is going to run for president".

Melendez, of Lake Elsinore, said Trump is an "inspiration to a lot of people" and assured him that more Californians than expected support his plan to stop illegal immigration.

Sessions promised that prosecutions of criminal immigrants would likely double. Jerry Brown took to Twitter to call out the president's lies on immigration. Jerry Brown past year that bars police from asking people about their immigration status or helping federal agents with immigration enforcement.

Trump also said the United States has the "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world". "You're putting them at greater risk", he said. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) from the left, fired back.

Christianson was the last law enforcement officer to speak.

De Leon accused Trump of hosting the California officials, most of whom are Republicans, because "he's terrified Republicans will lose control of Congress". Ultimately, what will matter here is whether the DOJ wins the lawsuit and a judge agrees that this is an issue where federal law supersedes state law. He said he was privileged to live in the Central Valley where agriculture was a multi-billion dollar industry and promised that ICE was not sweeping through the fields grabbing hard working immigrants.

But those who want to see the president take a more compassionate approach on immigration see statements like this as conflating the minority of undocumented immigrants who get involved with criminal activity with the "dreamers" and other law-abiding immigrants.

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.

"These aren't people. These are animals, and we're taking them out of the country at a rate that's never happened before". "Not the people who are seeking a better life in America". He said the leaders were "working with the administration". The earlier one produced a suggestion from Rep. Martha McSally, an Arizona Republican - and this may have been a joke - that Trump should build a wall between the states to contain California's "dangerous policies".
