POTUS Donald Trump’s Weekly Address 4/7/2018: Defending the Nation’s Borders While California Democrat-Run STATE Government’s “Sanctuary State” Policy Jeopardizes Citizens and Defies LOCAL and FEDERAL Authorities
My fellow americans, the federal government is charged with the sacred duties of protecting our nation, supporting our constitution, and defending our borders. We also have to ensure the equal application of our laws in all 50 states.
Last year, politicians in California violated the constitution by nullifying federal law and declaring their state to be a sanctuary from federal immigration enforcement, a border-free zone with thousands of criminal aliens can roam free, avery, very dangerous situation. Unacceptable to everyone.
Their actions not only peril the security of the people of california, but the security of the entire nation. The california century bill should be called the jailbreak bill because that is exactly what it is. They forced the release of dangerous criminal aliens from prisons and jails, including drug traffickers and dealers responsible or the deaths of countless americans. It has gotten totally out of control.
We cannot allow it to go on. California’s law also increases are dealt on the ability — increases are ability — the relationship is ridiculous. It forces law enforcement not to work together. Last week, the citizens of orange county,california bravely resisted the open borders politicians in sacramento. The Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to join the administration’s lawsuit to stop these dangerous and unconstitutional actions. All across California and all over America, everyday citizens are taking a stand to protect their families, protect their borders, and protect their country.
Every citizen has the right to be protected by federal law. And when politicians in California break those laws, they violate the constitutional rights of their citizens.
My message to communities under siege from drugs and gangs and violence is, you can stop this, and you can stop it cold. Partner with the federal government so we can help to remove these threats from your communities, and restore peace to our streets.
I’m also calling on congress to immediately close the deli border security loopholes that endanger our country. All over our country, we are living with laws that don’t work. Congress has to change them.
Democrats in congress are doing everything in their power to undermine immigration enforcement and encourage illegal immigration. Their policies are putting all of America at risk. It is so bad, it is hard to believe what they are doing and why they are doing it. We cannot let it continue. The Democrats are not doing what is right for our country.
I will not rest until we have secured our borders, and restored the rule of law. We will win, and we will win soon. It is happening.
