Despite the President's threats, Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said he will not back down. The mayor said he will abide by the 1985 sanctuary city ordinance prohibiting police from questioning anyone on their legal status.
"We are not going to trade the civil rights of people for federal money you compromise a lot in politics but you don't compromise civil rights," Mayor Steinberg said.
The mayor also said he will not be bullied by President Trump.
"I think the President's executive order is an abomination," Steinberg added.
