Trump Threatens to Pull Immigration Agents Out of California

Globe Staff

According to officials, 60 of the arrestees had reentered the United States after previously being deported - a felony that could carry a sentence up to 20 years in federal prison based on the undocumented person's criminality; 20 had no prior immigration history or encounters, one has pending criminal charges.

Trump brought up California's "sanctuary state" policies at Thursday's meeting about school safety at the White House, prompted by last week's mass shooting at a Parkland, Florida high school.

Sandra Mendoza marries her fiancé, Yancarlos Mendez, at the Morrow County Jail, in Ohio. "If we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said 'Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves, ' in two months they'd be begging for us to come back, they would be begging".

In a letter last month, Sens.

"We don't go into neighborhoods knocking on a bunch of doors looking for people different than us", he said.

He said by failing to keep criminal aliens in custody, state and local officials are making it more risky for ICE agents, who then have to go looking for the offenders.

The White House did not immediately comment on the president's suggestions.

Employers are also forbidden to share confidential employee information without a subpoena. He pointed to "a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation" and lamented the "protection of these terrible criminals". Many cities have defied the threats, with lawsuits pending in Chicago, Philadelphia and California over whether the administration has overstepped its authority.

Trump mused Thursday that he might take the opposite approach to show California politicians how much the state depends on immigration agents for public safety.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested 145 people, described by the agency as "criminal aliens and immigration violators", in a week-long operation in South and Central Texas that ended on Friday, Feb. 16.

"President Trump today renewed his attacks on California with more insults and threats".

"And it would never happen", he said.

The president's comments were the latest effort by the Trump administration to pressure "sanctuary cities" to cooperate with federal immigration authorities.

"Our state laws work in concert with federal laws".
