Washington sources reported that this is not the first time the President has spoken in racially fraught terms about immigrants. Meanwhile Trump's comments came during a discussion with state and local leaders on California's so-called sanctuary laws, which strictly limit communication between local law enforcement and federal immigration officers and which the Trump administration is suing to invalidate.
Furthermore he vented about the nation's immigration laws, calling them "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world". He exhorted his administration to "do much better" in keeping out undesirable people, including members of transnational gangs like MS-13. Meanwhile the local officials invited for the event took turns praising his immigration policies and lamenting California's law, arguing that it was making it more difficult for their communities to find and deport criminals.
Further the President's language and his focus on
California drew a sharp rebuke from Jerry Brown, the state's Democratic Governor.
Brown said in a statement that "Trump is lying on immigration, lying about
crime and lying about the laws of California. Flying in a dozen Republican
politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing.
We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed".
