back against our own governor to restore public safety to the state of california to sit at the same table and hear the stories from small cities, larger counties. we are a collective force saying enough is enough, jerry brown, time to put the safety of our citizens first. rob: this has become such a politicized topic and how these laws existed before donald trump, apparently the president during the meeting made a comment about animals, a lot of people think he was talking about gang leaders and drug smugglers coming into the country but the times and other outlets jumped all over that trying to turn this into a political thing, a racism thing but you say this is not about racism at all. >> when you have a splice of what was said at the meeting with the president was referring to are the actual numbers, what is happening in these sanctuary cities. if you look at this year alone
the release of 142 gang members many of which are ms 13 gang members that were put back into sanctuary cities across california and across the nation. looking at california alone we are home to nearly 90 of these gang members think to sanctuary policies. in san diego since january alone ice had put retainers on 350 criminals eligible for deportation for not only coming into this country illegally but these are people committing crimes in our country, 350 were able to walk away under sanctuary laws because we couldn't inform them of their release date from our jails. it is not right when people start looking at the numbers and what is happening in our communities, dangerous people being put back out on the streets no questions asked and ice is looking for them in our

california. under the obama administration, he sued the state of arizona because they sought to increase enforcement of federal immigration law. the supreme court heard that case, states cannot attempt to undermine federal immigration policy. go. rob: no one seemed to have issues with any of these laws when the last president was in power. what do you make of that? >> people once to make this about partisan politics, they are the same now as they were under the prior president. if you make this about politics why aren't we talking about the us to permit of justice lawsuit against arizona. all you hear about is trump versus california, the department of justice lawsuit against california which is similar to obama's against the
