California became a "sanctuary state" Monday, as a bill that Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law in October officially took effect. The law bars police in the nation's most populous state from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases, Fox News reported. The Golden State is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants. "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," Brown said on the day he signed the bill.
President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Democrats are not doing anything to fix the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, adding that activists and Hispanics will start "falling in love" with Republicans. "Democrats are doing nothing for DACA - just interested in politics. DACA activists and Hispanics will go hard against Dems, will start 'falling in love' with Republicans and their President!" Trump tweeted.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, believes there should be no DACA amnesty deal contained within the government funding bill coming later this month. Rep. Meadows joined the Todd Starnes Show today to discuss DACA, chain migration, and funding for the president's planned border wall, saying "If we don't secure our border and stop chain migration, we've just created a problem we'll have to deal with down the road."
