Anti-Sanctuary Movement


For John, BLUFI am betting that all those children of Viet-namese refugees contribute to the Conservative flavor of Orange County, California.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




From The LA Times, by Ms Cindy Carcamo, 27 March 2018.

Here is the lede plus four:

Just more than a week after tiny Los Alamitos voted to defy California's law protecting immigrants in the country illegally, Orange County is poised to become a counterpoint against the state's resistance to the Trump administration's policies.

On Tuesday, Orange County supervisors may consider whether to take up a resolution to condemn and possibly take legal action against the state's "sanctuary" laws.

"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 he'll broach 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 immigrants from President Trump's immigration crackdown.

The cutline for the photo at the top of the story has someone, holding a sign with the ICE hotline number, on Katella Avenue outside Los Alamitos City Hall, in Orange County.  When I was in high school in Long Beach, in Los Angeles County, I road my bicycle on Katella.

Orange County used to be pretty conservative, but then with the outflow of people from LA County became more "Progressive".  Now it seems to be flowing back the other way.  And this resistance to the Sanctuary movement is a good thing.

What I find strange is State and Local Governments looking for help with the Opioid Crisis, but, on the other hand, rejecting the Federal Government with regard to illegal immigration.

Hat tip to the Drudge Report.
