Trump Says He May Pull Immigration Enforcement From California

Trump arms folded ICE California

Trump brought up California's "sanctuary state" policies at Thursday's meeting about school safety at the White House, prompted by last week's mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school. "Frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California you would have a crime nest like you've never seen in California".

"If we ever pulled our ICE out, and we ever said, 'Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves, ' in two months they'd be begging for us to come back".

President Donald Trump angrily said on Thursday that he is considering withdrawing immigration and border control enforcement agencies from California because of what he called the state's "protection of terrible criminals". Trump thinks the state would surely be sorry if he followed through on his threat.

These people are "cowards", Trump said, suggesting they would stay away from schools if they knew teachers were carrying concealed weapons.

"Frankly it's a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation", he said, referring to a policy adopted by around 300 local authorities, cities and states of limiting cooperation with strict federal immigration edicts. "Of the six persons detained as part of specific operations, only one of them had an arrest warrant while the rest were "collateral arrests" (people who were in the place and time of the arrest and who did not have legal immigration status were also stopped by immigration authorities)".

Why? Because he feels the state is giving his administration "no help" in targeting the violent MS-13 gang, especially in Los Angeles.

The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's statement.

Trump's administration has been critical of California's so-called "sanctuary" law, which took effect January 1, 2018.

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, a California Democratic, said Trump's comments were mean-spirited. "I'm enforcing the laws they enacted", Homan told Fox News on Wednesday.
