Trump to host anti-sanctuary summit with California leaders
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, state Assemblywoman Melissa Melendezand more than a dozen elected California officials who publicly oppose the “sanctuary state” law are expected to attend a meeting in Washington today at the invitation of President Donald Trump.
A White House official said Trump and the heads of the federal departments of justice, homeland security and immigration and customs enforcement will meet with California public officials to “discuss shared efforts to end the nullification of federal law and restore community safety.”
The meeting comes as California Republican officials have mobilized to persuade city councils and county boards of supervisors in GOP strongholds to move against Senate Bill 54.
