USA TODAY Weekend Extra - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent Trump blasted Cal­i­for­nia Gov. Jerry Brown’s par­dons Fri­day of five ex-con­victs fac­ing de­por­ta­tion, in­clud­ing two whose fam­i­lies fled the Kh­mer Rouge regime in Cam­bo­dia four decades ago.

In a tweet Satur­day, Trump listed the ex-con­victs’ crimes be­fore they were par­doned. They in­clude mis­de­meanor do­mes­tic vi­o­lence, drug pos­ses­sion, and kid­nap­ping and rob­bery.

Trump wrote: “Is this re­ally what the great peo­ple of Cal­i­for­nia want?” Brown’s of­fice didn’t im­me­di­ately re­spond to a re­quest for com­ment.
