President Donald Trump warned California not to push ahead with sanctuary-state status, in an interview with Fox News that aired ahead of Super Bowl.
New president Cities sheltering illegal immigrants
Late January, Trump signed an order to cut off federal funds to cities sheltering illegal immigrants, and San Francisco is among those California cities that offer sanctuary status to immigrants.
Los Angeles and about 40 other jurisdictions in California offer some sort of sanctuary policy, according to the Los Angeles Times.
“[Sanctuaries] breed crime, there’s a lot of problems,” Trump told Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly.
President Donald Trump has attacked the judge who suspended the travel ban imposed on Middle East immigrants and warned that he will be responsible if something happens.
An Executive Order signed by Trump on January 27th halts the entire US refugee program for 120 days, bars entry of immigrants from seven mostly Muslim countries for 90 days, and suspends entry of Syrians until further notice.
A district court judge in Washington State on Friday passed an order halting the executive order.
In an appeal against the lower court order, the Justice Department requested the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco reinstate the ban, but the federal appeals court rejected the request.
"Just cannot believe a judge would put our country in such peril. If something happens blame him and court system," Trump said on Twitter Sunday, referring to Judge James Robart.
The president added, "The judge opens up our country to potential terrorists and others that do not have our best interests at heart. Bad people are very happy." ■
