Trump Threatens to Pull Immigration Agents Out of California

The president's suggestion, however impractical, was his latest attention-grabbing statement to pressure so-called "sanctuary" jurisdictions, which the administration claims are a magnet for immigrants who commit crimes.

"Frankly, it's a disgrace, this sanctuary city situation", Trump said at the White House. Frankly, if I pulled our people from California, you would have a crime nest like you've never seen in California. "All I'd have to do is say 'ICE, Border Patrol, leave California alone, '" he said during a listening session at the White House. "And you know what, I'm thinking about doing it".

President Donald Trump said on Thursday he's considering pulling federal immigration enforcement agents out of California, which declared itself a so-called sanctuary state and limits local police cooperation with USA authorities enforcing the president's immigration policies. Trump thinks the state would surely be sorry if he followed through on his threat.

We write to request we be immediately briefed on the troubling reports that ICE is targeting raids in California. They are doing a lousy management job.

California has a "sanctuary state" policy, in which the state openly refuses to cooperate with federal immigration authorities. "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)".

Trump said that "while we're getting MS-13 out by the thousands", members of the gang still manage to enter the United States.

The administration stepped up criticism of California after January 1, when a law took effect to largely prohibit state and local law enforcement agencies from detaining people at ICE's request unless they have been convicted of any of hundreds of crimes outlined in a 2013 state law. "The president's obsession with our state is growing more outrageous by the day", she said. "I'm enforcing the laws they enacted", Homan told Fox News on Wednesday. They have the highest taxes in the nation, and they don't know what's happening out there.

We firmly believe that law enforcement must prioritize unsafe criminals, not undocumented immigrants who do not pose a threat to public safety.
