California has declared itself a "sanctuary state" for illegal immigrants. But that won't stop Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

ICE's Acting Director, Thomas Homan, fired a warning shot to the Golden State, telling them that they'd "better hold on tight" in the fight over illegal immigration.

In an interview with Neil Cavuto, Homan revealed what he thought of the new California law.

"I think it's terrible," Homan said, plainly. "If [California Gov. Jerry Brown] thinks he is protecting the community, he's doing quite the opposite," Homan said. "He is knowingly putting law enforcement at risk."

Homan also added that, no matter what California does, the crackdown over illegal immigration will continue.

The "sanctuary state" law prevents local and state law enforcement from working with ICE officers. To compensate, Homan said that ICE would double its officers in California.

"There's no sanctuary from law enforcement," he said. "California better hold on tight: they're about to see a lot more deportation officers. If politicians don't protect their communities, then ICE will."

Homan added that he hopes the Justice Department would go a step further – arresting Brown and sanctuary city mayors for "harboring illegal aliens," which is a federal crime.
