Orange County Votes To Ignore California Sanctuary Laws While AG Threatens To Take Action

The dominoes are starting to fall in California in resistance to California’s sanctuary state laws

(LA Times) The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to move against the state’s “sanctuary” laws, adding a powerful voice to a growing backlash in some conservative parts of California to the state’s pro-immigration policies.

The board voted 3-0 to join a federal lawsuit against California’s sanctuary laws.

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.

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.

This has made many pro-illegal alien criminal supporting California Democrats Very Upset

State Sen. Kevin de León, who wrote SB 54, warned cities going against the state’s sanctuary 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.

So, a threat to do something against the jurisdictions which are resisting the California law, which is itself resisting federal law. Say, doesn’t federal law take precedence over state law, at least in the case where the Constitution gives Los Federales primacy? The Constitution does give Los Federales primacy when it comes to immigration. The 10th Amendment, States’ Right, doesn’t apply here. That’s also what illegal alien supporters told us vis a vis the Arizona illegal alien law, SB1070.

(Fox News) California Attorney General Xavier Becerra would not rule out taking action of his own against officials who fight the laws, including the sheriff.

“State law is state law. It’s my job to enforce state law and I will do so. We want to make sure that every jurisdiction, including Orange County, understands what state law requires of the people and the subdivisions of the state of California,” Becerra said at a news conference. When asked if that meant an arrest or lawsuit against the sheriff, Becerra responded, “I think I just answered that.”

Perhaps US Attorney General Jeff Sessions should remind Mr. Becerra what federal law says. Especially if Becerra takes action. Sessions should have Becerra arrested and charged with violating multiple federal statutes on illegal alien “harboring”.

Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes told Fox News in an interview that Becerra’s comments “were threatening,” but the sheriff’s office was not doing anything that the law did not allow.

“My hope would be that he would read the language of the law that was passed,” he said on “Hannity.” “It very clearly says in there what we can and cannot do.”

Barnes added that the law has put Californians at risk by returning dangerous individuals back into the communities and that by making this information public, the sheriff’s office was trying to help the community be safer.

“They’re very serious crimes and they’re being return back into the community, and quite honestly back into the communities in which they preyed upon and committed their crimes to begin with.”

Illegal alien supporters say they don’t want to keep the bad ones, just the good ones. Yet, they are doing all they can to shelter the bad ones.
