Trump On Fox News: Cutting Federal Funds To ‘Sanctuary’ California Is Definitely An Option

President Donald Trump is not messing around when it comes to ending sanctuary cities that harbor illegal immigrants.

Now, he’s just made new threats against California, unless they get their act together!

Washington Times reports:

President Trump said Sunday that he’s considering withholding federal funds to California if state officials proceed with a proposal to create a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants.

“If we have to, we’ll defund,” Mr. Trump said in an interview with Bill O’Reilly broadcast Sunday on Fox News. “We give tremendous amounts of money to California. California in many ways is out of control.”

Democrats in the state’s Senate Public Safety Committee approved a measure last week to restrict police and local agencies throughout the state from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
