Just a short time ago, tiny Los Alamitos voted to defy California’s law protecting illegal aliens squatting in the United States, Orange County too has had more than enough, and is joining the fight against the state’s resistance to the Trump administration’s policies.
Orange County supervisors are very likely to take up a resolution to condemn and possibly take legal action against the state’s “sanctuary” laws, reports the LA Times.
“These state laws are preempted by federal law,” Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson said. “Our officers actually face penalties under state law if they so much as talk to federal agents for the wrong thing. That’s just unacceptable and it’s contrary to federal law.”
Nelson said the topic will be brought up in closed session whether to join a federal lawsuit against the state or launch its own litigation.
Other cities in the county, including Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Huntington Beach and Mission Viejo are also starting to take action to voice their grievances against the state’s sanctuary laws aimed at protecting illegal aliens from President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
Just to give you an idea of how dire the situation is in Southern California, a parent took a video outside an elementary school in Riverside County (East of Orange County), and of all the students and parents coming out, you can count Americans on your fingers, utterly overwhelmed by the masses of illegal alien children and parents. See video below.
On Monday, Texas and more than a dozen other states led by Republican governors got behind the Trump administration and filed an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit against California’s sanctuary laws.
Nelson jumped onboard of a resolution initially brought on by Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel that would condemn the state’s sanctuary laws. She later added wording that would direct the county’s public counsel to take legal action.
“We cannot allow this to happen in Orange County and we need to protect our families and our homes here in Orange County,” she said. “And that means bolstering our cooperation with federal immigration enforcement and stopping our county from becoming a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants.”
SB 54, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed after the Legislature passed it last year, prohibits state and local police agencies from notifying federal officials in many cases when immigrants potentially subject to deportation are about to be released from custody.
State Sen. Kevin de León, whose parents are both illegal aliens, and who has also admitted to illegal human trafficking, warned cities going against the sanctuary state laws.
“Pushing a racist and anti-immigrant agenda devoid of facts or supporting legal analysis is a pretty sad use of taxpayer resources, especially when it could result in crippling legal costs for cities that rush to join this dead-end effort,” he said in a written statement.
