It’s pretty humorous as Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg’s white elitist faction has proven to be every bit as bigoted towards immigrants, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color as the GOPers who support Sheriff Scott Jones.
Nevertheless, Steinberg took aim at Sheriff Scott Jones’ decision to host a public forum with the nation’s top immigration enforcement official, calling the decision “cynical” and “mean.”
We’re serious. Steinberg, the mayor of one of the nation’s most segregated and racist communities, actually said that.
Steinberg said he will be joined by a large group of protesters before the Tuesday forum with Jones and acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Thomas Homan. Labor unions, faith leaders and pro-immigrant groups are expected at the vigil, while state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León is expected to attend the forum.
The Trump administration has pledged to crack down on illegal immigration, which would include withholding federal money from cities such as Sacramento and counties that offer sanctuary to undocumented immigrants. On Monday, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he was “urging states and local jurisdictions to comply with these federal laws.”
Jones said he organized the forum to “find common ground to reduce conflicting information, eliminate ambiguity and reduce fear.”
