Sheriff Mims Meets With President Trump to Discuss Sanctuary State Laws

WASHINGTON D.C. -- Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims met with President Trump on Wednesday to discuss sanctuary state laws. 

Mims was at the round table discussion with other law enforcement and California leaders.

"My hope is I can communicate to the President the difficulty the state law puts the sheriffs in not the federal law," said Sheriff Margaret Mims. 

The Sanctuary State Law prohibits local authorities from aiding immigration agents and Mims said it is creating an unsafe community. 

"There could be an MS 13 gang member I know about and I can't tell ice about it," said Sheriff Mims. 

 After listening to Mims, President Trump weighed in. 

"It is a disgrace," said President Trump. He added that he will be looking into it. 

General Jeff Sessions has filed a lawsuit against the state of California for the sanctuary state laws. Sheriff Mims said she supports the lawsuit because it will hopefully bring clarity on how to communicate with ICE.
