Trump: California's sanctuary cities want to leave 'ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept'

- April 18, 2018

President Donald Trump continued to accuse California Gov. Jerry Brown on Wednesday of not protecting the border with Mexico, writing online that there’s “a revolution going on in California.”

The feud centers on deploying National Guard troops to the Mexican border. Trump insists Brown has backed out of an agreement to send troops to the border, while Brown has said the offer to send troops still stands but that he wouldn’t use those National Guard troops to implement immigration policy.

“There is a Revolution going on in California. Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept,” the president tweeted on Wednesday morning. “Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!”

Brown is the only Democratic governor of a state that borders Mexico.

Trump’s tweet follows another from the previous day where the president tweeted that Brown is “not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border. He cannot come to terms for the National Guard to patrol and protect the Border.”

Brown, meanwhile, told a crowd at the National Press Club in Washington on Tuesday that “we’ve already come to terms” on an understanding with the federal government and the state could send “two or four hundred” troops.

“That’s being worked out. There’s very good communication between California’s National Guard and the National Guard headquarters,” Brown said.
