"We have people coming into the country, or trying to come in, we're stopping a lot of them, but we're taking people out of the country, you wouldn't believe how bad these people are", Trump said during a meeting with California lawmakers and officials who oppose their state's policies on sanctuary cities.

In today's meeting he attacked California's immigration policy as providing "safe harbor to some of the most vicious and violent offenders on earth". He said the state's sanctuary laws are interfering with his deputies' ability to work with federal agents to keep his community safe. "A local ordinance is preempted by state law, and therefore invalid, when it 'duplicates, contradicts or enters an area fully occupied by general law, either expressly or by legislative implication"'. The case is pending.

On Tuesday, the San Diego City Council broke with the county and voted to support California's sanctuary laws.

"Mexico does nothing for us", he said. Now the Trump administration is concerned that decision could signal trouble in its legal fight against so-called sanctuary states and cities.

In addition to criticizing the Oakland mayor, President Trump blamed democrats and Gov. Jerry Brown, and in March said he stood in "solidarity" with those pushing back against sanctuary policies in places such as Orange County.

On Wednesday, the president said the "catch and release" tactic is not working, and it's allowing illegal immigrants to commit additional crimes. Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing.

That translates to 14.74 percent total voter turnout, compared to four years ago when 18.11 percent of voters cast ballots. Those who decide to vote at their assigned polling place should bring their mail ballot with them to give to poll workers.

At the table Wednesday were mostly elected officials and law enforcement leaders from Southern California, although Northern California had representation with Fresno County Sheriff Margret Mims and Stanislaus County Sheriff Adam Christianson.

"The state of California's attempt to nullify federal law has sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected and their borders secured", he told the group of California officials gathered at the White House for the meeting.

"I'm greatly honored to be here with the courageous mayors and sheriff's and local leaders from California".

"California's Sanctuary laws...release known unsafe criminals into communities across the State", he added.

"I know what you're going through right now with families is very tough".

Melendez was referring to the fatal shooting of the 32-year-old Pleasanton native who was killed by an undocumented immigrant three years ago on a San Francisco pier. (A district judge deemed the order unconstitutional last November).
