Trump threatens to yank immigration enforcement from California

Trump threatens to yank immigration enforcement from California

"They would be begging", he added. And you know what?

"I don't think law enforcement should be the ones punished because of decisions that are being made by elected officials in certain jurisdictions, or at the state level", said Dyer.

Of course, ICE would not be able to take any action in California if Trump decides to pull ICE out of the state.

"In California, we protect all of our people from criminals and gangs, as well as risky assault weapons", Brown, the governor, said in a statement Thursday.

Trump criticized California's sanctuary policies that forbid local and state law enforcement to communicate and cooperate with immigration authorities, with very few exceptions. You'd be inundated - you would see crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country.

Almost one quarter, or more than 2 million, of the country's estimated illegal alien population live in California, according to the Public Policy Institute of California. "They're about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the state of California". That led to his rant against California on Thursday. "You'd see crime like you'd never seen in this country".

ICE said in a statement that it "voluntarily withdrew from participation" in the school's 12th annual government and public service career fair Wednesday, following a request by Rutgers officials, a New York Public Radio affiliate reported.

Now consider what Trump is suggesting. It would be a clear violation of precedent established by the Supreme Court that says states can not be conscripted to carry out federal law.

Homan continued, "SB54 will negatively impact ICE operations in California by almost eliminating all cooperation and communication with our law enforcement partners in the state".

Trump's remarks are part of an ongoing war between his administration and the state of California, and come on the heels of increased efforts on the part of his administration to reel in cities and states that have been less than cooperative with federal authorities on immigration. This is a so-called sanctuary state that limits local police with ICE.

"Frankly, it's a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation, the protection of these frightful criminals in California and other places", Trump said. "We know exactly where we're going to arrest them", he said. At the same time, the state's murder rate keeps falling and crime is at a historic low. "And they don't know what's happening out there", Trump said.
