Orange County, just south of Los Angeles, is a pocket of conservatism in a deep blue state, and local citizens are pushing back against California’s sanctuary state laws that severely limit cooperation with federal immigration officials. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department announced it will publicly post when inmates are released from custody. The information will apply to all inmates although it is intended to assist ICE agents to pick up those with criminal records as they are released.
The mayor of Aliso Viejo, California is joining leaders of other cities looking to opt out of the state’s “sanctuary” law, which allows for less cooperation on the local level with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. The Los Alamitos City Council is the first city to opt out of the unconstitutional law, which was met with overwhelming support of about 50 to 1. The ACLU is threatening to sue the city if they fail to comply with state law.
California declared itself a ‘sanctuary state’ that protects illegal aliens from deportation. The federal government reportedly is planning immigration ‘sweeps’, targeting San Francisco where Kate Steinle was killed by an illegal alien. California’s Attorney General Xavier Becerra warned that employers will be prosecuted if they assist federal immigration agents.
A disturbing video shows thousands (literally) of tents and shacks where homeless people are living along the Santa Ana River Trail in Orange County, an upscale area in California. More than 25% of the nation’s homeless population now lives in California. Most sleep on the streets, under bridges, and tucked away in fields and parks. This video will haunt you.
Illegal aliens are allowed to obtain drivers licenses, free in-state college education, free health care and much more. Over the past few years, 243,000 Californians left the state as refugees and took $8-billion in assets with them. They were replaced by a growing illegal-alien population, largely on welfare and with protected status. California State Assemblyman Travis Allen says 75% of Californians are against a sanctuary state, and 65% of Latinos also oppose it.
