California clashes with Donald Trump on sanctuary cities Sanctuary cities are places that limit their cooperation with federal officials when it comes to detaining undocumented immigrants. City officials in Los Angeles, San Francisco and Oakland have pledged to keep their sanctuary policies. However, Trump has threatened to cut off all federal dollars to cities and counties that refuse to fully cooperate with immigration enforcement.
Why is Trump so behind on filling staff jobs, establishing concrete policies? Yesterday Donald Trump signed a “decision memo” to revamp the air traffic control system. But there was little legislative detail in the plan. There’s not much to other splashy announcements from the White House, including tax cuts and the arms deal with Saudi Arabia. And hundreds of positions are unfilled in federal agencies.
