White House stokes California Republican revolt

The sanctuary cities issue thatís roiling the state gets an airing in front of President Trump.

By CARLA MARINUCCI and CHRISTOPHER CADELAGO 05/16/2018 05:01 AM EDT

SAN FRANCISCO ó President Donald Trumpís fight against sanctuary cities is about to get some help from deep behind enemy lines in California.

More than a dozen conservative officials from across the state are flying into Washington to meet with the president on Wednesday afternoon ó a session that current and former administration officials say is intended to highlight Trumpís commitment to eradicate municipal safe harbors for immigrants.

ďItís a show of force,Ē said a Republican familiar with the discussions.

The political component of the meeting is hard to miss. The president gets an opportunity to amplify his recent message about the need for California officials to cooperate with federal officials to stem what he says is a new tide of illegal immigration. And for the local Republicans, the bulk of whom are from Southern California, the event offers a national megaphone to broadcast their anti-sanctuary resistance ó a central theme in their efforts to roll back recent Democratic gains in traditionally red San Diego and Orange counties, a region thatís pivotal to the fight for control of the House.

2. Good.

Pete Wilson's crazed anti-immigrant posture put the California Republican Party in it's current peril. Maybe those idiots and Trump will bury it.
