President Trump responded to Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti’s tweet last Friday, where Garcetti informed illegal immigrants “the city is on your side” and would not allow the police department to cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“The Mayor’s efforts to shield illegal aliens endangers the lives of the public and law enforcement who have to go into the field to apprehend those released. He shouldn’t be urging illegals to beat the system, he should be urging them to safely turn themselves in!” tweeted Trump.

Last Friday, Garcetti and Police Chief Michel Moore gave a public service announcement to let illegal aliens know they would not be held accountable to U.S. laws while living in Los Angeles, California.

“Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side. Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in Immigration enforcement,” Garcetti stated.

Garcetti gave details on what to do and not do when confronted by ICE, including contacs for legal support.

Police Chief Moore added, “Our police force does not do the job of federal law enforcement, we will not enforce immigration laws.”

Tensions are at an all-time high between sanctuary cities ICE due to the lack of support police officers are giving ICE to keep violent criminal illegal immigrants off the streets.

In New York City, Reeaz Khan, an illegal immigrant from Guyana with an expired Visa, attacked and raped a 92-year-old woman last month, who died from her injuries. Khan was arrested in November for assaulting his father, but the police did not notify ICE about his 3-year expired Visa and the assault charge, instead Khan was protected by the sanctuary city’s policy and set free to committ another crime.


How is this keeping the city safe if they are protecting criminal illegal immigrants from ICE? What about the safety of American taxpaying citizens, do they not matter anymore?
