'Deadly and unconstitutional': Trump attacks California sanctuary cities

'Deadly and unconstitutional': Trump attacks California sanctuary cities

Kevin de Leon, the author of the sanctuary state law who is challenging Sen. The lawsuit claims California's policies aimed at protecting undocumented immigrants violate the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution. "We have federal laws that are supposed to deal with this issue". The case is pending.

Cox said Trump is "absolutely right, the first role of government is to protect its people" and said Newsom and Brown "have failed miserably".

We do not ask victims of crimes for their legal paperwork.

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".

Last month, Trump signed an executive order directing the deployment of military along the US-Mexico border to fight illegal immigration, asserting that the situation had reached "a point of crisis".

"This is your Republican resistance right here against what they're doing in California", said California Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez, coopting a term used by Democrats opposed to Trump's presidency. The Justice Department already is looking into her actions.

As far as what's next, Mims said Attorney General Jeff Sessions will follow up on the comments made during the meeting.

At a roundtable on immigration policy, Donald Trump suggested the Oakland mayor should be prosecuted. Jerry Brown speaks during a news conference in Sacramento, Calif.

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

Venting out his frustration at officials in both Mexico and California, Trump vowed to strengthen the US' "weak" immigration laws.

"Part of the problem that we have is our economy is so strong that people are pouring up to get into our economy". Since then, various other California cities have joined the DOJ's brief or expressed their opposition to the law, including Hesperia and Barstow.

The president also indicated that support for anti-sanctuary city and state laws was growing across California.

You talk about obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California.

Trump, who has long condemned sanctuary cities, also said the USA has the "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world". "You've gone through a lot, too, although it's become quite popular what you do".

President Donald Trump on Wednesday hammered California for its so-called sanctuary immigration policies, in what appeared to be his latest push to embolden his base leading into the midterm elections.

"This narrative that sanctuary cities will allow more immigrant people to report more crime is fake news, Mr. President", he said.

Steinle, a young San Francisco-area woman, was shot and killed by an illegal immigrant felon while walking on a pier with her father.

Randy Capps, director of USA research at the Center for Migration Policy, said the sanctuary debate reflects the polarized politics of the day, with some on both sides moving away from the center. Last November, a jury acquitted the Mexican national of all murder and manslaughter charges, but convicted him of being a felon in possession of a firearm.
