USA: 'They are the best friends of the criminal' - Trump condemns sanctuary cities

United States, San Diego
March 14, 2018 at 01:54 GMT -00:00 · Published

US President Donald Trump criticised sanctuary cities as a source of instability and danger, speaking from a press conference following an inspection of prototypes for his promised Mexican border wall, in San Diego on Tuesday.

"California's sanctuary policy puts the entire nation at risk. They are the best friends of the criminal, that's what exactly is happening and the criminals take refuge in the sanctuary cities and it's very dangerous for our police and our enforcement folks," said Trump, promising to put an end to this situation.

"These policies release dangerous criminal offenders to prey on innocent people and nullify the federal law, they are threatening the security and the safety of the people of our country," he added.

Sanctuary cities is a definition for those cities that limit their cooperation with the national government to enforce immigration law, with the idea to reduce fear of deportation and family break-up among people who are in the country illegally.

In October 2017, California Governor Jerry Brown made history by declaring California the first official 'sanctuary state'.

El presidente de EE.UU., Donald Trump, criticó las ciudades santuario como una fuente de inestabilidad y peligro, desde una conferencia de prensa luego de una inspección de prototipos para su prometido muro fronterizo, en San Diego el martes.

"La política de `santuario´ de California pone en riesgo a toda la nación. Son los mejores amigos de los criminales, eso es exactamente lo que está sucediendo. Los delincuentes se refugian en las ciudades santuario, y eso es muy peligroso para nuestra policía y nuestros cuerpos y fuerzas de seguridad", dijo Trump, prometiendo poner fin a esta situación.

"Estas políticas liberan a delincuentes peligrosos para que se aprovechen de personas inocentes y anulan la ley federal, amenazan la seguridad y la protección de la gente de nuestro país", agregó.

Las "ciudades santuario" son aquellas ciudades que limitan su cooperación con el gobierno nacional para hacer cumplir la ley de inmigración, con la idea de reducir el temor a la deportación y la separación familiar entre las personas que están en el país ilegalmente.

En octubre de 2017, el gobernador de California, Jerry Brown, hizo historia al declarar a California como el primer "estado santuario" oficial.
