California is more or less in open rebellion against the federal government.
And reports out of the “Golden State” indicate that Trump is about to hit back, hard.
Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf told local media that Trump had ordered the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to conduct a massive sweep of the San Francisco Bay area.
Schaaf, as mayor of one of California’s rebellious “sanctuary” cities, insisted she was releasing this information to “protect” people.
Not citizens, not legal resident of California, but the millions of people who entered this country illegally.
Criminals. She’s snitching on the government to protect criminals.
Like most other cities in the state, Oakland has forbidden local police officers from cooperating with ICE.
That, according to Jessica Vaughn of the Center for Immigration Studies, should be enough for Trump to not only prosecute city officials like Schaaf, but to also drastically cut federal funding of law enforcement in California.
“Why should a jurisdiction get taxpayer money for law enforcement when they’re stiffing one of the biggest law enforcement agencies of the federal government?” she asked in remarks to Breitbart. “They shouldn’t. There needs to be some consequence for having a sanctuary policy.”
