LOS ANGELES — Please attribute the following statement to Jennie Pasquarella, immigrants' rights director of ACLU of California, in regard to President Trump's comment today threatening the removal of ICE agents from the state:

"Studies have shown that communities that limit cooperation with ICE agents are safer. Mr. President, we'd welcome an ICE-free California."
