President Trump praised local California officials who are leading the “rebellion” against the state’s ‘Sanctuary’ policies Wednesday, saying they’ve “bravely resisted” the Golden State’s “unconstitutional” immigration guidelines.
The President hosted a round-table discussion of California politicians who defied state officials and voted to reject the rule that prohibits local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agents.
“Each of you has bravely resisted California’s deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws,” Trump said at the White House. “You’ve gone through a lot, too, although it’s become quite popular what you do.”
“The state of California’s attempts to nullify federal law have sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected and their borders secured,” Trump added. “They want border security and they want protection.”
