Trump Holds Round Table: “Rebellion” in La-la Land!

It was “a made for TV moment” as President Trump demonstrated once again why he’s a media marvel at branding controversial political issues in his favor.

Last Wednesday the President invited various California leaders from a number of communities and municipalities, who’ve joined him in suing the state and for standing up against “deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws” and called for “a rebellion” against the state’s immigration policies.

The President, flanked on both sides by local mayors, sheriffs, and legislators, began the White House roundtable meeting praising those in attendance; “Each of you has bravely resisted California’s deadly and unconstitutional sanctuary state laws, you’ve gone through a lot, too, although it’s become quite popular what you do.”

Moreover, this wasn’t simply a photo-op as per the Obama Administration. This was a serious policy discussion attended by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The President’s roundtable meeting was in direct response to Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown’s, signing into law (late last year) their “unconstitutional version” of the immigration law known as the “sanctuary state” bill mandating California’s law enforcement officers not assist federal ICE agents carrying out federal immigration laws, moreover impeding their ability to safely apprehend violent criminal aliens like MS-13.

Brown’s apparent arrogance towards the citizens of California was on full display when he signed into law SB 54 stating; “These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day.”

The Sacramento bill has had far-reaching impact for both proponents of open borders and those who believe in the rule-of-law. As a consequence to Brown’s reckless and unconstitutional act, the Attorney General in March announced a federal lawsuit against California’s “sanctuary” policies, which is directly putting federal law enforcement agents and the citizens of California in harms-way.

Case in point: The Trump Administration came face to face in February with little known Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf who decided to give a “heads-up” to local illegal aliens within her community, many of whom were singled out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents as criminal aliens for deportation. Her alert allowed hundreds of criminal immigrants to escape, moreover putting many ICE agents at risk.

Her reckless action was once again highlighted on Wednesday when the President urged Attorney General Sessions to consider charging the outspoken mayor with obstruction of justice.

Saying; “You talk about an obstruction of justice, I would recommend that you look into obstruction of justice for the mayor of Oakland California, Jeff.”

Another unintended consequence to Browns “sanctuary state” bill is the growing number of conservative towns, municipalities, and communities fighting back against Sacramento, looking to exempt themselves from the “unconstitutional overreach” by the governor, and joining in on the federal lawsuit by the Trump Administration.

Prompting the President to acknowledge; “The state of California attempts to nullify federal law have sparked a rebellion by patriotic citizens who want their families protected and their borders secured.”

Adding; “They want border security and they want protection.”

Some of the counties and municipalities that have joined the federal lawsuit include; Newport Beach, Orange, Huntington Beach, Mission Viejo, Aliso Viejo, Fountain Valley, San Juan Capistrano and Yorba Linda.

Perhaps the most dramatic moments by those assembled at the roundtable came when Assemblywoman Melissa Melendez told the President; “I think the resistance that started in the Democratic Party, this is your Republican resistance, right here.”

Followed by San Jacinto Mayor Crystal Ruiz, pleading with the President; “We need help, Mr. President, we need help protecting the city of San Jacinto, Escondido, the state of California.”

Then urging the President “Don’t give up the fight!”

Moreover, the roundtable in the White House didn’t go unnoticed 3,000 miles away in “La-la land,” indeed Governor “Moonbeam” was paying very close attention to the televised Trump production, and no doubt was becoming a bit unhinged.

“Trump is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of California,” Brown said in a statement. “Flying in a dozen Republican politicians to flatter him and praise his reckless policies changes nothing. We, the citizens of the fifth largest economy in the world, are not impressed.”

Perhaps the Supreme Court will eventually “impress” Governor “Moonbeam” when they rule against him, in that only the “federal government” granted under the constitution can make “immigration law.”

  1. Why do Republicans peach states rights until it’s opposes their views?

  2. I can’t wait to see ‘Moonbeam’ shut down by the Supreme Court! His quote above, “These are uncertain times for undocumented Californians and their families, and this bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear every day” is completely backwards!! Protecting public safety should be a PRIORITY for the LEGAL citizens of CA – who live of fear of the illegals! WHY on earth did the people of CA elect this jerk FOUR times?! He’s a truly disgusting person and governor.

  3. crooked as hell and heaven….

  4. The very moron, trump, doesn’t follow the rule of law and has enuff nerve 2 tell someone else what the rule of law is…..TRUMP is a ‘dictator’ and destroying the very way America fought for 300 years and that is DEMOCRACY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
