'We Won't Be Bullied': California Democrats React to Trump's Immigration Threats

President Donald Trump said Thursday he would consider ordering a withdrawal of immigration enforcement agents from California, leaving the state's pro-sanctuary officials to "figure it out for themselves".

"We're getting no help from the state of California", Trump said.

Last month, a Palestinian man who had been living in the US for 39 years was deported, despite a request from the House Judiciary Committee that his case be reviewed.

Jennie Pasquarella, immigrant rights director of the ACLU of California, added, "Studies have shown that communities that limit cooperation with ICE agents are safer".

Trump said during a roundtable discussion at the White House that he has just about had enough with California.

Trump said heavily Democratic California, which gave Hillary Clinton a resounding victory in the 2016 presidential race, was "doing a lousy management job".

Employers are also forbidden to share confidential employee information without a subpoena.

"Frankly, it's a disgrace, this sanctuary city situation", Trump said at the White House.

The Trump administration says California's refusal to cooperate with federal immigration authorities puts communities in danger and forces ICE agents to arrest criminal aliens in courthouses and other "sensitive" locations.

The senators took particular issue with an interview by Homan on Fox News in which he said California "better hold on tight" after the sanctuary state law went into effect.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement backed out of an annual appearance at Rutgers University's career fair this week amid backlash from students.

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

State Sen. Kevin de Leon, a Los Angeles Democrat who authored the new law, said, "The president's plan sounds perfectly fine but we know that will never happen and we'll work with ICE to remove actual risky criminals from our neighborhoods".

California officials reacted angrily to the President's impromptu comments.

Speaking at a meeting about gun control Friday, he blasted the state's "sanctuary" law that bars cops asking people about their immigration status.
