Trump threatens to pull immigration agents out of California due to ‘sanctuary’ status

(Worthy News) - President Trump voiced frustration Thursday with California’s status as a statewide sanctuary for illegal immigrants, including gang members, and said he’s considering pulling federal immigration enforcement agents out of the state as a response.

“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,” the president said during a White House meeting on law enforcement issues. “They would be begging. And you know what? I’m thinking about doing it.”

California last month became a “sanctuary state” where police are barred from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement actions in most cases. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]

  1. That'd be nice but I know of many kids from my home Church that are going to School out there to include my own daughter. While I agree they (California) "deserve it," we all deserve it. Have you seen the state of the Nation???? We might be doing better financially and in jobs but morally we are bankrupt. I'm praying for California and for Godly leaders. I'm praying that the kids, my kid, that we've sent out there change the face of California just by being in God's will.

  2. Wow, usually, an article gets maybe 3-4 Comments. This is wild (for Worthy News).

    Truth is, we (taxpayers) are paying for all those (well paid) immigration officers who are not being allowed to do their jobs in California. So...Trump has a point. Why keep them there and on the payrolls. Better to use them somewhere where they can do what they are trained for. And let California deal with the consequences of it's own actions. I won't be the feds fault then.

    If the nation doesn't want illegal immigrants, but wants to ignore their being here illegally, it should make them legal.

    IF it's not willing to deport them or make them legal, then why staff depts that can't do their jobs? Let em go somewhere else.

  3. California wants illegals, let them be swamped with them. Great tactic. Gov Brown is in open defiance to the President of the United States. And take away Federal $$ from California's liberal universities.
