Sacramento County (CA) Sheriff Scott Jones traveled to the White House Tuesday and told President Donald Trump that California is full of "spectacular failures" where dangerous criminal immigrants are released from jail every single day. The visit came amid increased tension between the administration and California municipalities on sanctuary city policies.

Jones joined a group of local law enforcement officials, lawmakers and administration officials for a roundtable discussion with Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and ICE Director Thomas Homan as they clamp down on sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration officials, McClatchy reports.

"There are spectacular failures every single day around California, and I’m sure beyond, of folks that ICE wants as part of their priority, criminals, that are going to go out and at a known recidivism rate and victimize other folks that we’re unable to capture, apprehend and keep detained for deportation," Scott told Trump.
