Orange County Supervisors Revolt Against California's Sanctuary Law

Los Alamitos council meeting

The move comes as California battles the federal government over how local authorities cooperate with federal immigration agencies. On March 6, the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against the state, alleging a trio of state laws, including SB 54, violate the Constitution. Supervisor Andrew Do was absent. It's not picking up their responsibilities, right?

In another contentious matter at Tuesday's meeting, the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to rescind a plan for potentially opening homeless shelters in Irvine, Huntington Beach and Laguna Niguel that could house up to 400 people.

Supervisors initially voted 3-0 during closed session on Nelson's request but Supervisor Todd Spitzer later added his support to make it 4-0.

"SB 54 makes local law enforcement's job more hard and requires bureaucratic processes that could allow risky individuals to fall through the cracks of our justice system", said Sheriff Sandra Hutchens, adding that the new policy applies to all inmates and therefore does not violate California's sanctuary laws.

As of this week, the sheriff's department lists everyone who is either in custody or has been released in the previous 30 days.

OCSD spokesperson Carrie Braun told the Los Angeles Times that the OCSD released 172 inmates who were in the country illegally because the department was prohibited from contacting ICE. "I don't think I could sleep at night knowing that I had let somebody go and they go out and commit another crime with those kinds of charges", she continued.

"Millions of people come here to get their benefits", Rohrabacher said. "Whatever, you can boo me all you want, you haven't worked the streets like I have". "So they see it our way".

During its meeting Tuesday, the Orange County Board of Supervisors considered various possible measures opposing California's sanctuary state law.

"We weren't doing that", he said.

Krafcik said the autonomous taxi service will operate within a set area of approximately 100 square miles in the Phoenix area. The company has racked up the most autonomous test miles on roads, and millions more in simulation.

"We're not talking here about law-abiding immigrants; we're talking about criminals", said Michelle Steel, a board member and an immigrant.

The city's attorney wrote a memo to all employees assuring them that they can share anything they have with Homeland Security, "including information regarding citizenship and immigration status".

"They shouldn't be conflicted", Nelson said of police.

"In the 1960s, people sat in seats just like yours and vehemently opposed anything that advanced civil rights". They felt the vote was a step back for a county that had been changing. "Will you be able to do that?"

President Donald Trump on Wednesday extolled a major California county for joining his administration's legal challenge to the state's new limits on how much local police and sheriff's departments support his rigorous deportation policy.

Earlier in the day, she and another sanctuary law opponent were the only two to mount a counter demonstration against a protest of the supervisors' resolution. Those are the people that choose to call me names because of my skin color. "And that means bolstering our cooperation with federal immigration enforcement and stopping our county from becoming a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants". "We have to be compliant with the law that was passed, although we didn't agree with it ..." The case often has been cited because the man responsible for her death had been deported five times and had seven felony convictions.

Betty Robinson, a Tustin resident and long-time opponent of illegal immigration, thanked the board and recalled the death of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

The council for the O.C. city of Los Alamitos voted last week to opt out of the sanctuary state status.
