President Donald Trump’s arrival in California was marked with a jab at the mayor of Los Angeles for “urging illegals to beat the system.”

As the president arrived on the west coast for a fundraiser and to speak with organizers of the 2028 Olympic Games, he slammed the Democratic mayor for a message he shared last week to illegal immigrants about their rights.

“The Mayor’s efforts to shield illegal aliens endangers the lives of the public and law enforcement who have to go into the field to apprehend those released,” Trump tweeted. “He shouldn’t be urging illegals to beat the system, he should be urging them to safely turn themselves in!”

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti had informed residents in his video that the Los Angeles Police Department does not cooperate with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Garcetti advised illegal aliens on how to dodge immigration authorities in his video.

“No matter their immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know their rights and how to exercise them,” Garcetti said. “Remember, you have the right to remain silent. You don’t have to open your door to an ICE agent that doesn’t have a warrant signed by a judge. You have the right to speak to a lawyer before signing any documents or speaking to law enforcement.”

“I want you to know, you do not need to be afraid. Your city is on your side, and rest assured, here in Los Angeles we are not coordinating with ICE,” the Democrat added.

Trump noted that “countless Americans are murdered by criminal illegal aliens” during his State of the Union address earlier this month where the family of a Nevada couple killed by an illegal immigrant were guests.

Members of an elite Border Patrol unit have reportedly begun deploying as the Trump administration ramps up efforts against so-called sanctuary cities. Members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s Border Patrol Tactical Unit are set to assist ICE in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, New Orleans and Detroit, among others.

California’s sanctuary laws have been repeatedly slammed by the president and the latest performance by the Democratic leaders in Los Angeles, and Trump’s reaction, caught the attention of many on Twitter.
