'Safety Is Coming First': Tomi Says Californians Are 'Waking Up,' Opposing Sanctuary Law
Tomi Lahren slammed California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and Democratic lawmakers who refuse to comply with federal immigration law.
She said every American and legal immigrant should be infuriated by leaders who support sanctuary policies and oppose measures to secure the border, such as President Trump's proposed border wall.
"It's a slap in the face," Lahren said on "Outnumbered" on Friday. "I think Californians are waking up. I've said this time and time again, because I live there and I see it every day: They're tired of this. The partisanship is going out the window, and safety is coming first."
A new survey from UC-Berkeley's Haas Institute found an overwhelming majority of Californians want to deport more illegal immigrants, and nearly half support President Trump's travel ban.

Lahren noted that Trump has expressed a willingness to compromise on a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in exchange for border wall funding, but Democrats have been resistant to strike a deal.
"You have the Republicans that are saying, 'We want a wall, we want to protect Americans,' and you have Democrats that are saying, 'What we really want to do is protect illegal immigrants,'" Lahren said. "Those are the competing agendas. Let the American people decide which one's more important."
"This president cares about America first," she added. "And guess what? Americans have a right to put ourselves first in our own country. Radical position, I know."
Former Obama administration official Marie Harf said she doesn't like the idea of border wall, but since Trump was elected on the issue, Congress should come together on a deal to build it and protect Dreamers from deportation.
"Why is that a compromise Congress can't get to?" she asked, arguing most Americans would support it even though Trump promised voters that Mexico would pay for the wall, not taxpayers.
