With Trump detaining even legal immigrants at airports, can my mom who holds a South Korean passport fly to California?

Korea is not on the list of countries but the aggressive enforcement by this administration means it is not recommended she fly. Contact a US immigration attorney for review.
People without any lawful immigration status should be extremely careful about doing anything that could expose them to immigration authorities.
Trump's Executive Order does not apply to South Koreans, however immigration law is rapidly changing. With Trump's most recent executive order(s) the only thing certain about immigration is that it is now very much uncertain in terms of how laws will be enforced and how TSA, Customs & Border Patrol and Dept of Homeland Security and ICE will act under their newly expanded authority. Only an Immigration attorney has the expertise to properly fill out immigration forms and put together the right package of documents and other evidence to support the immigration benefits you are trying to obtain. However, especially in these turbulent times, you really need to retain an immigration attorney. This is not a do-it-yourself project! You should focus on retaining experienced immigration counsel, especially now that immigration is much more restrictive since Trump is now President. Good luck.
