California Gov. Gavin Newsom Takes Aim At Trump's Anti-Immigration Policies


Newly inaugurated California Gov. Gavin Newsom on Tuesday delivered a sharp rebuke to the anti-immigrant message President Donald Trump presented last week in his State of the Union speech. In his State of the State address, Newsom promised the state would stand up to Trump’s immigration policies and demands for a border wall. The governor on Monday ordered California’s National Guard troops to be removed from their post along the U.S.-Mexico border. “The border ‘emergency’ is a manufactured crisis and California will not be part of this political theater,” he said, noting that the number of border crossings are at their lowest since 1971.

Homan said, "There's no sanctuary from federal law enforcement."
