Politicians who sparked anti-'sanctuary state' wave in California to meet with Trump

As reported by the LA Times on May 14, 2018

"Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar never expected to spark a political movement when his tiny Orange County city decided to take on California's "sanctuary state" law.

In April, Edgar and the rest of the City Council — representing a suburb of just 11,600 — took the stand, and it encouraged other conservative government bodies to follow suit.

On Wednesday, Edgar and Los Alamitos Mayor Pro Tem Warren Kusumoto will join President Trump at the White House at the president's invitation.

Edgar sent a letter to Trump and Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions on May 1, requesting support. But he didn't expect an invitation.

"I remember signing … and thinking, 'This feels a bit far-fetched,' but our city has got behind us," Edgar said.

Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel and a few elected officials from San Diego were also invited to the meeting with Trump to talk about the anti-sanctuary actions taken by various municipalities across the state, Edgar said."
