Immigration officials have stated their intent to increase their presence in the state and Jeff Sessions, Attorney General, is seeking to discontinue funding to cities that provide sanctuary for illegal immigrants. "Cities like Denver and states like California are allowing criminal aliens to run loose, to kill, murder, maim or hurt our fellow Americans".

Williams was joined in Washington by Reps.

The community leader said they have sent SOS letters to their legislators at the state and federal level and BACE will hold a rally to be joined by local community and elected officials on April 26 in front of the Town Hall of NY to bring public attention to the ordeals those undocumented immigrants are experiencing.

Republican state Rep. Dave Williams and other state lawmakers met Thursday with advisers from the White House Domestic Policy Council. A federal judge permanently blocked the effort after a lawsuit.

He says, "If you want the money, you can't have the sanctuary cities". It harbors awful criminals, " he said March 8 at a White House Cabinet meeting.

California officials should be thanking Immigration and Customs Enforcement for arresting around 150 undocumented immigrants in a recent raid, says Thomas Homan, the department's acting director. He accused Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf of endangering law enforcement agents' lives after warning the public last month of an upcoming immigration operation, and was subsequently rebuked by Gov. Sessions said in a speech in California on March 7 that Schaaf's action allowed hundreds of "wanted criminals" to avoid arrest.

Schaaf also said "Oakland's agenda is a thriving community, Trump's agenda is bigotry".

He says, "it's certainly something that we're looking at with respect to her individually". Jerry Brown (D) feuding over the state's "sanctuary" policies, which shield immigrants from deportation by allowing local authorities to decline to cooperate with ICE. Colorado lawmakers who disagree point out that the U.S. Constitution forbids local cops from enforcing federal laws.
