Orange County Defies California State's View On Sanctuary Laws

A number of other cities in California - including Aliso Viejo and Los Alamitos - have also been working to opt out of the sanctuary law.

Sameer Ahmed, a staff attorney at the American Civil Liberties Union of Southern California, said some cities appear to be discussing largely political resolutions, not local laws.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has regularly lambasted sanctuary policies as unconstitutional. The Department of Justice's lawsuit seeks to restore the federal government's Constitutional authority and sole jurisdiction over immigration issues and end the existing conflict that local law enforcement encounters with state law.

The all-Republican Board of Supervisors in the county that is home to 3.2 million people and many immigrants approved the measures by unanimous votes.

"We can not have all the states with different immigration laws".

The 18 attorneys general who joined the Trump administration's lawsuit on Monday wrote in the court brief that California's sanctuary laws are preempted by a Supreme Court decision. "When local law enforcement is enforcing these federal immigration policies, it actually makes the communities less safe because immigrants are more reticent to talk to the police", Rotcher said.

Critics of California's sanctuary status came out in support of the lawsuit at the meeting donned in American flag attire and holding signs that read, "No, No, No Sanctuary State", CNN reports.

People came to relax, children. "Why? Because of some criminal negligence, because of slovenliness". Hundreds of protesters marched through the Siberian city of Kemerovo on Tuesday demanding justice.

The city of Santa Ana said it will do the same.

According to Rohrabacher, the "flow of illegals" has brought down the quality of education, healthcare, and housing in the county. "SB54 does not allow for that and so starting yesterday, I have started posting the names and the dates of release of all our inmates as publicly accessible to everyone in the community", Hutchens said.

"It puts the state of California in a very awkward position here", he observes. Now under SB 54 local law enforcement is unable to provide information of the release date of removable criminal aliens in custody.

When Becerra was asked if his comments meant a potential arrest or lawsuit against Orange County's sheriff, Becerra responded, "I think I just answered that".

"We want people deported, simply because they're here illegally", another man said.

"I think it's a huge overreach by the state", he said, "and because of that I think for our city we need to make sure that we do the right thing, and that we focus and we will take our direction on immigration and specifically around the sanctuary issue with the USA government". "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. The Los Angeles Times reported that "legal experts" were "doubtful Los Alamitos can prevail", but the city is no longer going it alone.
