Gaspar, Abed Tout Opposition to Sanctuary Law in Meeting with Trump

H4 trump immigrant animal comment2

- President Donald Trump called California's sanctuary state law "ridiculous" during a White House meeting with a group of state elected officials who also oppose the mandate aimed at protecting immigrants from deportation.

The roundtable featured a number of California Republican lawmakers and law enforcement officials who have pushed back against the state's sanctuary laws which limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities.

A senior White House official told One America News that "there are plenty of people in the state of California who reject the illegal and unlawful decision made by their own state government". "You've gone through a lot, too, although it's becoming quite popular what you're doing".

"The state of California's attempts to nullify federal law have sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected and their borders secured", Trump added.

Watch the President's comments above. It is black-letter law that a locality can not enact an ordinance that conflicts with state law - let alone one that, on its face, authorizes local officials to violate state law.

The officials represented counties and cities that have taken stances against the law, some by joining or filing briefs in support of a Trump administration lawsuit challenging it.

"They are breaking down society by breaking down the rule of law", McCarthy said.

In his tweet, he said: " I thank the APC for giving Ekiti people a candidate they love to vote against at all times ". Virtually every aspect of our lives needed interventions and it is only the APC that can bring this desired change.

"I think it is heartless". The administration's position has recently been gaining steam within California with 35 local jurisdictions having come out against the state's sanctuary legislation which went into effect in January of this year.

"California's law provides safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on Earth, like MS-13 gang members putting innocent men, women and children at the mercy of sadistic criminals", Trump claimed.

"We need help Mr. President", San Jacinto Mayor Crystal Ruiz said.

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.

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

"You talk about obstruction of justice", said the president, who is himself the subject of a special counsel's investigation into whether he sought to thwart a federal examination of Russia's meddling in the 2016 elections. The Department of Justice had said in the wake of the raid that it was investigating.

Trump has been a frequent critic of both Schaaf and Gov. Jerry Brown wrote on his Twitter page that Trump "is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA".
