Trump Slams California Governor for Pardoning Convicts Facing Deportation

President Donald Trump speaks at Local 18 Richfield Training Facility Thursday

President Donald Trump criticized California Governor Jerry Brown on Twitter Saturday over several pardons he gave on Friday.

Brown issued 56 pardons in total and 14 commutations.

Brown's intervention for the men - among 56 pardoned - marked the Democratic governor's third consecutive pardon round in which he intervened on behalf of immigrants who were deported or faced deportation because of criminal convictions.

"Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens whose crimes include (1) Kidnapping and Robbery (2) Badly beating wife and threatening a crime with intent to terrorize (3) Dealing drugs". "Is this really what the great people of California want?"

President Trump on Saturday assailed California Gov.

Now in Trump's most recent Twitter rampage, he condemns the governor for pardoning five immigrants.

While the deportation proceedings are not halted due to the pardons, the state convictions which determine federal authorities' decisions on deportations are eliminated.


"Pardons are not granted unless they are earned", the statement said.

Two of the convicted felons who were pardoned, Sokha Chhan and Phann Pheach, were facing deportation to Cambodia, a country and the Khmer Rouge regime they fled four decades ago.

Trump continued his war of words with Brown, who has accused the administration of "basically going to war" with California over immigration policy.

California passed a law last October that, among other things, prohibits local law enforcement from asking individuals about their legal status.

According to the governor's office, Chhan served nearly a year in jail and three years of probation for domestic abuse. Two of the immigrants came to America as child refugees.

Brown's pardon of Maher for kidnapping, robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, and use of a firearm included a reinstatement of Maher's "right to own, possess, and keep a firearm" to the extent allowable under the state penal code. He now works at the nonprofit Ecology Center in Berkeley and assists at-risk youth. In 2003, Mena was convicted of possessing illegal drugs while Alaniz served five months in prison and 13 months probation for a 1997 auto theft conviction.

"Daniel's case is of a person who made one mistake as a young adult, served his time and then completely turned his life around", the center said. Maher served five years in state prison and a year in federal immigration custody.
