US President Donald Trump compares illegal immigrants with animals

Mix emotions after Hanford votes to support resolution against California's sanctuary state law

Brown responded on Twitter, writing that Trump "is lying on immigration, lying about crime and lying about the laws of CA".

US President Donald Trump compared some of the illegal migrants to animals.

Trump's comments came during a discussion with state and local leaders on California's so-called sanctuary laws, which strictly limit communication between local law enforcement and federal immigration officers and which the Trump administration is suing to invalidate. "These aren't people. These are animals". "These aren't people. These are animals", Trump said during a California Sanctuary State Roundtable at the White House. Due to these weak laws they are rapidly coming inside the country, we are leaving them and they are coming again. "It's insane", he said. But the Trump administration has sued to reverse it, calling the policies unconstitutional and risky.

Trump used the session to vent his anger at the nation's immigration laws, calling them "the dumbest laws on immigration in the world".

Trump said California's law forced the release of illegal immigrant criminals, drug dealers, gang members and violent predators into the communities.

After the win over the Seagulls, the 19-year-old was also presented with the young players' Golden Samba, which is a prestigious fans' award.

Trump's comments were condemned by many on the social media, with some even circulating the video where he calls undocumented immigrants "animals". "MS-13, we're grabbing them by the thousands and we're getting them out", he said.

Trump also said the U.S. has the "dumbest" immigration laws in the world. "But we want people based on merit".

Sheriff Margaret Mims of Fresno County said the statute barred Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities from using her databases "to find the bad guys", or from entering prisons to locate people who might be in the country illegally. "They certainly don't help us much on trade". We're looking to bring them in.

"We have companies moving back into the United States like never before".
