San Diego Votes on Rejecting Jerry Brown's Sanctuary State Policy
A former San Diego city councilman spoke to Martha MacCallum about his effort to fight back against Gov. Jerry Brown's (D-Calif.) sanctuary state law.
The city council in California's second largest municipality will vote Monday on whether they will abide by the law some claim is antithetical to existing federal statutes, MacCallum said.
Carl DeMaio, a Republican, said the issue is not about immigration or racism.
"We are proud of the fact that America was built [by] immigrants," he said. "There's a lot of misinformation out there."
He said San Diego prides itself on "diversity and tranquility" and that the sanctuary state law is really about protecting convicts.
"The only people who are for the [sanctuary state law] are criminals and Sacramento politicians," he said.
DeMaio said the law puts immigrants at risk, while Democratic leadership claims the opposite.
