Escondido Votes To Join Trump’s Lawsuit Against Sanctuary State California

The dominoes continue to fall

(San Diego Union Tribune) Following a contentious, three-hour meeting filled with name-calling and impassioned pleas, the Escondido City Council voted 4-1 Wednesday to file a legal brief in support of the U.S. government’s lawsuit challenging the state’s sanctuary laws.

The action is the first by a San Diego County city. The county Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss filing a similar brief during a closed-door meeting on April 17.

At the beginning of the meeting, Escondido City Attorney Michael McGuinness explained what was, and what was not, being contemplated by the council.

He said the city was not suing the state, only filing a legal brief in support of the Trump Administration’s lawsuit, which contends California laws contradict and are in violation of federal law.

Police Chief Craig Carter said the new state laws put his officers in a difficult position. Since 2009, federal immigration officers have worked closely with Escondido police, he said. But as of January, when the new state laws went into effect, immigration officials no longer have a desk in police headquarters and local officers are forbidden in most circumstances from inquiring about someone’s immigration status.

One has to wonder how many more cities will take a stance. There are a lot of areas in California that do vote Republican, that aren’t unhinged illegal alien supporting Liberals.

Councilman John Masson made an interesting statement on Unintended Consequences

They said recent California laws hurt the city’s predominantly Latino community by not allowing local officers to work with immigration police. Instead, they said, federal agents are out there on their own now arresting people, some of whom are not criminals.

“When (the laws) got passed and we were no longer able to deal with ICE, that relationship with ICE disappeared,” Masson said. “So, no longer do we have control over our community and who we go after in our community, which was very controlled through our (police department).”

That’s an interesting take which really needs no explanation

One speaker, 17-year-old Maria Martinez, said she was an undocumented city resident whose father was deported in October.

“How shameful of you to think that tearing families apart will help the community,” she said. “This unethical behavior has to be stopped. If the sanctuary law is not in place, more behavior like this will continue.”

It’s not our fault, sweety. Blame your father for knowingly violating U.S. federal law.

    Now that she has self-identified as an illegal immigrant undocumented city resident, she should be picked up by ICE and sent back to Mexico.

    Seems people think there is a requirement for an illegal immigrant invader to commit an additional crime other than being illegal to be deported….SURPRISE!!
