The ongoing battle between California and the Trump administration over sanctuary cities got even more personal this week after the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement suggested politicians who allow such immigration refuges be charged with crimes.
In a discussion that focused on California, which Gov. "We've got to take them to court and we've got to start charging some of these politicians with crimes".
State and local officials have called the Trump administration's sanctuary city rhetoric "outrageous" and "unhinged" after a top immigration official floated the idea of targeting local politicians in municipalities that seek to protect undocumented immigrants. "That is a violation of 8 USC 1324".
Generally, California's new law means that law enforcement in the state are banned from holding prisoners until ICE can come and get them. "Are these sanctuary cities - Can we hold them accountable, are they violating federal law?"
"You want to arrest local officials for standing up for immigrants, you know where to find me", said Mayor Steinberg of Sacramento. "I think if they knowingly harbor and shield a known illegal alien, a public safety threat, in a jail and won't give us access", he said, the DOJ should charge the cities and politicians.

"I think we charge some of these sanctuary cities with violating federal law", Homan said. If Trump endorses his idea via the justice department, it will signal a sea change in American immigration policy.
Homan said that as of July 31 previous year, nearly 10,000 criminal aliens who were released onto the streets nationwide-rather than being turned over to ICE-have committed another crime.
On Tuesday, Homan said that transnational drug cartels "are using this sanctuary state law as a selling point". It limits cooperation between local law enforcement and US immigration authorities.
When a court ruling allowed most of SB 4 to go into effect, Travis County Sheriff Sally Hernandez backed off her earlier policy of ignoring most of the so-called ICE detainers that agents placed on inmates of the Travis County Jail who are accused of being in the country illegally. The law, which went into effect on January 1, "bars law enforcement officers in the state from arresting individuals based on civil immigration warrants, asking about a person's immigration status or participating in any joint task force with federal officials for the objective of enforcing immigration laws", according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
Supporters of SB 4 believe the law will take criminals off the streets. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
