"Your letter seeks federal dollars for California from hardworking American taxpayers but fails to admit that your State and local policies have played a major role in the current crisis," Sec. Carson wrote in a letter responding to the leaders.
The letter also blames California's sanctuary policies, saying "illegal and inadmissible aliens are increasing housing demand and draining resources," and says the Trump administration is addressing the problem by improving border security to reduce drug use. "The Trump administration is doing its part," Carson writes in the final part of the letter. "California needs to address the obvious local issues within its control to help address this catastrophe. When California has shown that it is willing to make hard and thoughtful choices to address these issues, the Trump Administration stands ready to support its efforts."

you crapped where you eat. now sleep in it.
When you consider that Jim Rockford’s trailer would go for a million these days, it is long past due to clean the crap off your own streets and bring sanity back to that part of the country.
Best HUD secretary ever, MAGA.
Us Californians sure do love to brag about being the 7th largest economy in the world, and our leaders sure do love to tax us for everything, but they need help paying for homeless shelters? Guarantee you not even half of the Federal aid would go towards that anyway.
Dearest cali: Cut the crap...literally.
Well now that the Federal Government stopped paying for the failed High Speed Train, California need a new Federal funded boondoggle !
“Guarantee you not even half of the Federal aid would go towards that anyway.”
Their squandering of federal funds with the half-a$$ed super train proved that’s how they do business.
Memo to California: Go to Hell
Ford(Trump) to NY(CA): DROP DEAD!
They broke it, they bought it.
No cash so they can buy more frigging needles.
If this is true (the now standard disclaimer when commenting on anything the MSM prints or broadcast) this is a really big slap down of the Governor of California.
On another thread on another subject I noted that the COUNTER OFFENSIVE has begun. I believe this is just part of it.
President Trump has up to now allowed the rogue states (and cities) to ignore Federal Law. Before he can really get tough he needs to prepare the battle field. He needs even the citizens in California on his side.
The message in the letter is not just directed toward California, but every major city that refuses to help in controlling the illegal invasion of our nation.
If CA cut off 100% of the money going to illegals, then maybe they might be able to do it.
Right on...Right on...Right on brother.
About Damned Time!
Guarantee you not even half of the Federal aid would go towards that anyway.
Make that 100% and you would be closer to the true number.
“Homelessness” is a source of slush funds for the Democrat party.
Screw up locally, demand help globally.
I love it when people tell it like it is.
Please read the comments attached to the Articles.
These Deluded people deserve NOTHING.
That’s guts! The guts to say what needs to be said.
I didn’t read them — ABC site? Yeah, I’m pretty sure I can predict what they say. Orange Man Bad!
How much did they ask for?
