In statement full of falsehoods, Trump calls Schaaf's immigration warning 'a disgrace'

In statement full of falsehoods, Trump calls Schaaf's immigration warning 'a disgrace'

California disagrees, arguing that state governments are not required under the Constitution to enforce federal immigration laws.

President Donald Trump Thursday voiced his displeasure with Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf and her preemptive warning about a massive immigration sweep by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. And, at the news conference Wednesday, she said Melinda Haag, former us attorney for the Northern District of California, is providing her and the City Attorney's Office with pro bono legal assistance.

"This is basically going to war against the state of California", said Gov. "How dare you needlessly endanger the lives of our law enforcement officers to promote a radical open borders agenda", Sessions said.

"What the mayor of Oakland did the other day was a disgrace", the president said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House. "Obviously, the attorney general has found it hard just to be a normal attorney general".

Trump again issued the threat to cut off funding to cities like Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles and others who embrace sanctuary city immigration policies. "Her actions support those who flout the law and boldly validates illegality", the attorney general said. "And it's certainly something we are looking at with respect to her individually". "Our department complies with the provisions of SB 54, the California Values Act".

Thursday's meeting with the White House Domestic Policy Council follows the Trump administration's lawsuit challenging California laws that it says protect immigrants in the country illegally.

"Many law enforcement leaders have said that sanctuary policies actually help them fight crime", Schaaf added. But he told the California police officials at the conference that he and the Trump administration "have got your back". The state wants a judge to certify that its laws are in compliance with federal immigration law. "Federal law is the supreme law of the land".

"How dare you distract the American people from a failed immigration system that tears apart decent families and forces the workers that our economy depends on to harvest our crops, deliver our services, and build our cities to live in fear and work under oppressed conditions", Schaaf said. The decision to sue California shows Sessions and Trump remain aligned on this priority, even as their relationship has recently deteriorated, with Trump attacking his attorney general and Sessions pushing back.

Trump doubled down on ICE Director Thomas Homan's earlier criticism that Schaaf's warning of imminent ICE activity tipped off criminals, leading to more than 800 avoiding arrest.

The state laws being challenged were a response to President Donald Trump's hawkish immigration policies and widespread fear in immigrant communities following a campaign in which he promised to sharply ramp up the deportation of people living in the US illegally. "Immigration law is the province of the federal government", he said.

"What Jeff Sessions said is simply not true and I call upon him to apologize to the people of California for bringing the mendacity of Washington to California", Brown said.
