L.A. Mayor Says Most of the People at Congressional Anti-Trump Forum are From California

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti pointed out that most of the people at a Congressional forum Wednesday criticizing President Trump’s immigration policies were from California.

“It feels like with so many southern Californians and some northern Californians in the room, too, that this is almost like we’re back in California,” Garcetti joked.

Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA) introduced Garcetti while House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) made a later appearance.

To Garcetti’s left sat Reps. Nanette Barragan (D-CA) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA).

Three other representatives could be seen in the clip: Reps. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), Joe Crowley (D-NY), and Pramila Jayapal (D-WA). All hail from deep blue states.

The apparent lack of geographical diversity did not seems to faze any of the participants.
