Trump Threatens to Pull ICE from California over 'Lousy Management Job'

ICE Director Hits Back at California Dems: 'I'm Enforcing Laws That They Enacted'

ICE backs out of Rutgers University career fair amid student backlash

"They would be begging.", Trump said. And you know what? "And you know what, I'm thinking about doing it", he said during a White House meeting on school safety.

It is hard for anyone to say at this point how serious the president might be in following through on his threat. The law effectively made California a "sanctuary state".

"Consistent with our public safety mission, 88 percent of those arrested during this operation were convicted criminals".

California politicians and law enforcement officials were quick to hit back at the president, saying Trump does not understand California's approach to tackling crime. He worries without ICE, local agencies like Fresno Police would have to pick up the slack and deal with immigrant criminals that ICE would normally take care of. He added that in no time, the state would "be begging for us to come back, they would be begging".

Trump's administration has been critical of California's so-called "sanctuary" law, which took effect January 1, 2018. "We will prosecute those who violate the law", promised Becerra.

The agency says ICE officers frequently come across other people who have entered the country illegally during targeted operations.

"California better hold on tight", Homan said on Fox News last month.

It's unclear whether Trump plans to follow through on his threat, which would leave a key border state without federal protection. That course of action would create many more problems than it would solve, so it is hard to imagine the president actually taking that extreme action.

According to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), all of the targets in this operation were amenable to arrest and removal under the U.S. Immigration and Nationality Act.

Federal immigrations have rounded up 145 people they describe as criminal aliens and immigration violators in South and Central Texas. Many cities have defied the threats, with lawsuits pending in Chicago, Philadelphia and California over whether the administration has overstepped its authority.

Calling the state's preference for embracing sanctuary policies a "disgrace", Trump claimed that California is not willing to cooperate with federal law enforcement. "We do our job Mr. President, you do yours". "We'd like to keep it that way".
