Tomi Lahren slammed California Governor Jerry Brown (D) and Democratic lawmakers who don’t support the federal immigration law.
Lahren stated that every American citizen should be angry with the leaders who support the sanctuary policies and do not support measures to protect the border crossing, as with President Trump’s proposal for a border wall between Mexico and the United States.
‘It’s a slap in the face,’ Tomi Lahren said on “Outnumbered” on Friday. ‘I think Californians are waking up. I’ve said this time and time again because I live there and I see it every day: They’re tired of this. The partisanship is going out the window, and safety is coming first.’
Latest research from UC-Berkeley’s Haas Institute found that the majority of Californians want illegal immigrants to be deported and nearly half of them support President Trump’s travel ban.

Tomi Lahren pointed out that President Trump expressed his willingness to compromise on a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in exchange for border wall funding, but the Democrats seemed unwilling to reach that agreement.
‘You have the Republicans that are saying, ‘We want a wall, we want to protect Americans,’ and you have Democrats that are saying, ‘What we really want to do is protect illegal immigrants,’ Lahren said. ‘Those are the competing agendas. Let the American people decide which one’s more important.’
‘This president cares about America first,’ she added. ‘And guess what? Americans have a right to put ourselves first in our own country. Radical position, I know.’
Ex-Obama administration official Marie Harf admitted that she doesn’t support building of a border wall, but since President Trump was elected on the issue, she said that Congress should come together on a deal to build the border wall and protect Dreamers from deportation.
‘Why is that a compromise Congress can’t get to?’ Former Obama official Marie Harf asked, arguing most American citizens would support it even though the President promised voters that Mexico would pay for the wall, not taxpayers.
