Trump Says Without ICE, California Would Be a 'Crime Mess'

Trump Says He May Pull Immigration Enforcement From California

President Trump voiced frustration Thursday with California's status as a statewide sanctuary for illegal immigrants, including gang members, and said he's considering pulling federal immigration enforcement agents out of the state as a response. Also saying California would become a "crime nest" if ICE agents were removed. If the administration were to remove Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials from California, the state would be "begging" for them to come back, he said.

In February, former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, now Trump's chief of staff, scrapped the Obama administration's policy of limiting deportations to people who pose a public safety threat, convicted criminals and those who have crossed the border recently, effectively making anyone in the country illegally vulnerable. "All I'd have to do is say 'ICE, Border Patrol, leave California alone, '" he said during a listening session at the White House. "California better hold on tight", Homan warned.

"The President is a first-rate negotiator", he tells Fox & Friends, "and I will suggest to you that that is what is going on". "I'm enforcing the laws they enacted", Homan said Wednesday, responding to claims that ICE is carrying out indiscriminate "raids" on illegal immigrants.

It is hard for anyone to say at this point how serious the president might be in following through on his threat.




Texas does not have a state-wide sanctuary policy like California does, but nonetheless many of its jurisdictions have adopted sanctuary policies in defiance of federal immigration law.

Most of the aliens targeted by deportation officers during this operation had prior criminal histories that included convictions for the following crimes: indecency with a child, assault, deadly conduct, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, drug possession, drug trafficking, burglary, resisting arrest, firearms offense, alien smuggling, illegally entering the US, and driving under the influence (DUI).

Dyer adds Fresno Police doesn't really work with ICE, unless it's on something like a criminal investigation.

The Trump administration and Republican lawmakers have been stepping up their fight against cities and states that limit their cooperation with federal authorities on immigration. He declared that the court was motivated by "political reasons". "We'd like to keep it that way". We're creating jobs and driving the nation's economy.
