SoCal Officials To Meet With President Trump On Sanctuary Law Opposition

The administration filed suit in March over California's so-called sanctuary laws restricting local law enforcement officers from notifying federal immigration agents when people who are undocumented are detained and about to be released.

U.S. President Donald Trump lashed out at unauthorized immigrants during a White House meeting Wednesday, warning in front of news cameras that risky people were clamoring to breach the country's borders and branding such people "animals".

Wednesday's meeting will include Escondido Mayor Sam Abed, Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel, and Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar along with a dozen other local California officials.

"We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in, we're stopping a lot of them".

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Department of Homeland Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan are also expected to attend the meeting, according to the White House.

Schaaf in February warned her constituents of an impending federal raid targeting 1,100 illegal immigrants that resulted in the arrests of roughly 200.

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. "We're gonna take care of them, we're gonna get it done", he said. "These aren't people, they're animals".

Despite California officials' attempts to thwart federal immigration authorities' efforts, Trump said his administration remains committed to deporting violent criminals, such as MS-13 gang members, by the "thousands".

Jerry Brown unleashed fury Wednesday in a series of tweets targeting President Trump, saying he was "not impressed" with the commander-in-chief's stance on sanctuary law and that he was "lying on immigration".

He continued: "And we're taking them out of the country at a rate that's never happened before". Great state. Each of you has bravely resisted California's deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws. Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) from the left, fired back.

"Mexico does nothing for us", he said. "You wouldn't believe how bad these people are. Not at the height of our historic diversity, economic output, and sense of global responsibility". 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.

"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. The administration says sanctuary jurisdictions allow risky criminals back on the street.
