Trump hammers California for itssanctuary policies

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has been a staunch supporter of sanctuary laws and in March warned the immigrant community ahead of a large-scale operation by federal immigration authorities.

US President Donald Trump blamed the influx of illegal immigrants in the US on the country's "dumbest laws".

In a White House meeting that included the attorney general, Jeff Sessions, House the majority leader, Kevin McCarthy, and top officials from the department of homeland security and the USA immigration and customs enforcement (Ice), Trump called the California policy "deadly and unconstitutional". The administration also has sued California over three laws aimed at protecting immigrants in the country illegally.

Along with Sessions, several federal officials were on to hand to participate in the roundtable discussion, including Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen; the acting head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Thomas Homan; and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.). "The children will be taken care of - put into foster care or whatever". "We're taking people out of the country".

A reporter from the Guardian falsely claimed that Trump was referring to "some immigrants" when he called MS-13 gang members "animals". "MS-13, we're grabbing them by the thousands and we're getting them out", he said.

CNN commentator Keith Boykin argued Trump's comments were "the same dehumanization tactic used by slave traders and slave owners to justify the oppression of black people for hundreds of years". "And that makes the job even tougher", he said.

"My constituents-and those are Democrats, Republicans and Independents alike-they don't want to see another Kate Steinle-that's what I hear every single week", said Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez. And I'll also tell him that we have the third largest California National Guard base in our city.

"Mexico does nothing for us, they do nothing for us", he said. We're stopping a lot of them.

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

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".

"I mean, you talk about obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland, California, Jeff", Trump said to Sessions who didn't respond. While multiple localities in the state have said they will opt out of the sanctuary policy, the laws are broadly popular in the state, with support from more than 50% of residents, according to polling.
