Sheriff tells Trump: California sanctuary city laws are a "disgrace"

President Donald Trump said Thursday he was referring to MS-13 gang members when he called some undocumented immigrants

Also Wednesday, U.S. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke announced in the two days since his department's law enforcement officers were sent to the southern border, more than a dozen arrests have been made.

Local California lawmakers and officials on hand for the meeting said their constituents support their efforts to fight the sanctuary state law because they value the safety of their communities.

The vote is mostly symbolic, the city will still abide by all immigration laws at both the state and federal level.

Trump was listening to Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims speak about how California's sanctuary city laws have hamstrung her ability to prosecute illegal aliens and especially unsafe gang members.

Omar Jadwat, director of the ACLU's immigrants' rights project, said the ruling reinforced decisions from the 1990s, including one that struck down part of a federal gun control law that required local police to determine if buyers were fit to own handguns. So we're gonna take care of it Margaret, we'll get it done.

Trump's detractors took the comments to apply to all illegal immigrants, even though the context appeared to be in respect to illegal alien gang members. He claimed those laws are forcing "the release of illegal immigrant criminals, drug dealers, gang members and violent predators into your communities" and providing "safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on earth".

The event came as top House Republicans worked to head off an attempt by party moderates to force roll calls on four immigration bills.

During an immigration round table at the White House with administration aides, political leaders and law enforcement officials from California, Trump said his administration was deporting undocumented immigrants who commit violent crimes. "Certainly don't help us much on trade".

"Mexico does nothing for us, they do nothing for us", he said.

"These aren't people", Trump emphasized dramatically, "these are animals". "We're taking people out of the country. That Democrats gave us that law and they don't want to do anything about it".

"She informed them and they all fled-or majority fled-and that whole operation took a long time to put together", Trump said.

"We have companies moving back into the United States like never before".

"If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child will be separated from you as required by law", Sessions said.

"We want to make sure that Sacramento gets the message and we want to make sure that the president knows that there's people in California that have a different perspective", he concluded. You have millions of people who want to see that our neighborhoods are safe and our borders are secure, " she said.

The meeting will be the second in recent weeks to highlight the immigration issue.
