Trump: ‘Sanctuary Cities Put Innocent Americans at the Mercy of Hardened Criminals’
TRUMP: “Last September, an illegal immigrant was arrested by San Francisco police for spousal abuse. ICE filed a detainer on the individual but the detainer was denied and the alien was released. Less then 10 days later the same illegal immigrant was arrested for murder. Many cases like that. In another case, an alleged illegal gang member was arrested by the San Francisco Police Department more than ten times between 2013 and 2017 for charges including domestic battery, assault, theft and rape. But San Francisco refused to cooperate with ICE -- you know that very well, don’t you, Tom? You have a lot of problems with that. And he kept getting released. Over and over again he was released. Sanctuary cities in states like California put innocent Americans at the mercy of hardened criminals, hardened murderers in many cases."
