Title: Trump says he's thinking about pulling ICE from California

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump declared on Thursday he was considering withdrawing Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents from California as punishment for what he claimed was a "lousy management job" in patrolling illegal immigration.

"You know what, I'm thinking about doing it," Trump said at a roundtable with state and local officials to address ideas to stop gun violence in the wake of the Parkland school massacre. His comments came after he decried the state of law enforcement in the Golden State.

"We're getting no help from the state of California. Frankly, if I pulled our people from California, you would have a crime nest like you've never seen in California. All I'd have to do is say 'ICE, Border Patrol, leave California alone,'" he said during a listening session at the White House.

"You would see crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country. And yet we get no help from the state of California. They are doing a lousy management job," he went on to say. "They have the highest taxes in the nation. And they don't know what's happening out there. Frankly it's a disgrace."

It was not clear how serious Trump was about the proposal. His administration has stepped up enforcement of immigration laws in California as an effort to pressure sanctuary cities, which is a term for local jurisdictions who have some policy of non- cooperation or coordination with federal immigration authorities.

California is also a key border for the United States, making it unlike Border Patrol or Customs and Border Protection could pull out of the state.

The San Ysidro border crossing is the busiest land port of entry in the entire Western Hemisphere, let alone the United States, and the California border is a major focus of preventing drug smuggling into the US.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Tom Homan said on Fox News earlier this year that California's policies would only increase ICE's presence.

"There's no sanctuary from federal law enforcement. As a matter of fact, we're in the process now, I'm going to significantly increase our enforcement presence in California. We're already doing it," he said. The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Trump's statement.

Pull 'em out for a week. See what happens. Then, after the outcry, bring them back provided California meets even more stringent conditions.

Trump could merely cut back on federal services, across the board.

A federal "go-slow", redirecting resources to states and localities which cooperate with legitimate federal authority.

Reduce staffing and the speed at which all border crossings in California are processed. Let them sit in line for 6-8 hours if they want to cross those CA borders. And every vehicle must be fully searched with a large percentage of those vehicles entirely disassembled to search for contraband.

Put the FBI cases from CA at the bottom of the pile. If they don't want to cooperate with the feds, they don't get to keep their place in line when it comes to FBI resources and lab expertise. And adjudicating things like SS benefits and disability and lots of other stuff? Well, we need to move half of those staff out of CA and put them at the end of the line.

The list is endless. That's before the feds even take a single action to monkeywrench the favorite priorities of CA pols. Like investigating their failures to care for their homeless and deal with public health. Or suddenly discover a whole bunch of meaningless mouse and bird and insect species that need to be protected from CA's high-speed choo-choo system now that they've spent tens of billions of dollars.

There's a lot that Trump can do if he really wants to take them on. The presidency is far too powerful when you get down to it. It has been for most of my life.
