During an interview on Monday, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy blasted Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) for enacting legislation that effectively made California a “sanctuary state,” saying it “goes against the core of who we are” as a nation.

“The whole concept of having a sanctuary state in California – that you are going to pick and choose what law that you are going to uphold goes against everything that makes us the United States of America. It goes against the core of who we are,” McCarthy said.

Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo asked McCarthy if there is anything the federal government can do about sanctuary cities.

“The United States cannot sustain themselves if this continues to happen. We have taken action inside of the House and the Senate. I know the president is appalled by this as well,” McCarthy responded.

McCarthy also expressed fear at President Trump’s suggestion that he would remove Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents from the state.

“Well no, I think he was making a very strong point. As a Californian, I fear of that,” McCarthy said about the possibility.
