Now more on yesterday's (Wednesday) White House meeting between President Trump and a number of California local officials - including from the Inland Empire - opposed to the state's sanctuary policies.  It became national news after it was reported that in the meeting, Trump called some people who cross the border illegally, "animals."  The President also encouraged U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to pursue obstruction of justice charges against the mayor of Oakland.  More from KQED's Alex Hall, in a story that aired in The California Report this morning.
