ICE Director: Brown Should Be Criminally Charged Over Sanctuary State Law

In November, a District Court judge in California became the latest to block enforcement of an executive order by President Donald Trump that would prevent certain federal funds from reaching sanctuary cities.

California Governor Jerry Brown in October approved sanctuary state legislation, Senate Bill 54, and it went into effect on Monday.

Nor was Homan shy about issuing a threat to California in response to Gov.

The father of a man killed by an illegal immigrant is "furious" about California's sanctuary state status and he's putting up a fight.

"I think it's bad".

"As I've always said, there's only one way to deal with bullies, and that is to stand your ground and stand with the people, and that's what we'll continue to do in Sacramento", Steinberg said. "I think we charge some of these sanctuary cities with violating federal law". California better hold on tight - they're about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the State of California.

"Well look, if he thinks he's protecting immigrant communities, he's doing quite the opposite".

An official at ICE said the department can't provide specific details about the added numbers due to security reasons.

When ICE sends detainer requests, they have to be ignored.

Hing similarly says that those calling for charging sanctuary-city politicians are "shooting from the hip" and "don't know what they're talking about".

An official from the DOJ confirmed the department is working with ICE to "explore any and all potential options for holding sanctuary jurisdictions accountable for their unsafe practices". "Now she has two young daughters without a mother", Homan said on Fox.

He warned that the sanctuary status will attract more illegal aliens to California.

Here, what matters most is a person's criminal record. "So California just bit off a lot more than it can chew", he said. Instead, they often limit information sharing and block local jails from keeping immigrants beyond their release date so that ICE can pick them up. Homan said the law puts his officers at risk by forcing them to arrest "dangerous criminals on their turf".

Nationwide, in fiscal 2016, under the Obama administration, the number of wanted illegal aliens handed over to federal authorities from detention facilities plummeted to less than 3 percent of what it was six years prior. The law, which went into effect on January 1, "bars law enforcement officers in the state from arresting individuals based on civil immigration warrants, asking about a person's immigration status or participating in any joint task force with federal officials for the goal of enforcing immigration laws", according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
