'We Need Help, Mr. President': CA Mayor Blasts Sanctuary Law at Roundtable With Trump
The mayor of a California city opposing the state's heavily debated sanctuary law blasted the state's government for its stance on illegal immigration.
A number of California lawmakers opposed to the policy met with President Trump on Wednesday to discuss the law and illegal immigration.
"Sacramento is angry because they lost an election," San Jacinto Mayor Crystal Ruiz said. "For God's sake, get over it."
Multiple cities and counties in the state have opposed Senate Bill 54, which was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in October 2017.
"Our people are the ones hurting," Ruiz stated.
She also said the state government is releasing the criminal illegal immigrants who could be a safety risk.
"My community is my family. You're putting my family at risk," she said.
Ruiz implored the president to help not just her city and other states opposing sanctuary law, but the entire state of California.
"All of us need help getting this solved," she said.
