At a meeting with mayors from across the United States on Wednesday, President Trump criticized sanctuary city policies for harboring dangerous criminals and illegal immigrants.

“The Department of Justice has announced today a critical legal step to hold accountable sanctuary cities that violate federal law and free criminal aliens back into our communities,” Trump told the gathering.

“We can’t have that,” he commented. “We can’t have it.”

The president blamed sanctuary cities for harboring groups like MS-13. “Sanctuary cities are the best friends of gangs and cartels like MS-13, you know that,” Trump said.

The DOJ threatened to subpoena sanctuary cities around the country Wednesday, after local officials warned they would arrest residents who complied with federal immigration raids.
