President Trump in early morning tweets on Sunday said Americans “are demanding that Sanctuary Cities be GONE.”
Trump, citing Fox News, initially noted that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) “just signed Bill banning Sanctuary Cities in State, & forcing all law enforcement agencies to cooperate with Federal Immigration authorities.”
“More and more states want to do this but their governors and leaders don’t have the courage to do so,” he said in a follow-up tweet.
“The politics will soon mandate, however, because people from California, & all over the land, are demanding that Sanctuary Cities be GONE,” he added. “No illegals, Drugs or Trafficking!”
DeSantis signed the legislation Friday.
The Associated Press reported that members of the crowd around DeSantis during the signing ceremony wore red “Make America Great Again” hats and cheered in support of the bill and at the mention of Trump.
