Orange County Supervisors Revolt Against California's Sanctuary Law

  • Los Alamitos council meeting

Los Alamitos, a small city in Orange County, voted last week to oppose California's "sanctuary" law.

"My Administration stands in solidarity with the courageous citizens in Orange County defending their rights against California's illegal and unconstitutional Sanctuary policies", Trump tweeted.

California's laws are created to interfere with or block federal immigration enforcement, but the state does not have that authority, the other states said in a court filing in the U.S. Department of Justice's lawsuit against California. "All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders". But the idea that Orange County would consider taking such a stand is concerning to immigrant advocates, he said.

The county supported Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, the first time it voted for a Democrat since the Great Depression.

Messi: Dybala and I don't combine well

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

The Justice Department sued California in March over three state laws, including one that requires the state to review detention facilities where immigrants are held and another that limits the ability of state and local law enforcement officials to turn people over to immigration authorities.

US President Donald Trump on Wednesday backed Orange County supervisors joining a federal government lawsuit challenging California's "sanctuary state" legislation protecting undocumented migrants.

Barnes said on "Hannity" that he took Becerra's words as "threatening" but hopes he understands the law that was passed, which allows the publication of inmate information. "You may intellectually be incapable of understanding that, but it is factually true", Supervisor Shawn Nelson told the crowd during Tuesday's board meeting, drawing boos and groans from the audience.

Facebook takes out full page newspaper ads to apologise over data breach
Zuckerberg said this week he would be willing to testify if he is the right person at the company to speak to lawmakers. If Facebook was slow to respond, its share price - down 14% this month - was not.

Orange County is the third most populous county in California, with roughly 3.2 million people. "My department, however, remains committed to cooperating fully with federal authorities in all areas where I have discretion to remove serious criminals from our community".

Annie Lai, co-director of the Immigrant Rights Clinic at UC Irvine, said the sheriff's new policy is part of a movement in Orange County "to either undermine or get around the spirit of SB-54". "The people of Orange County deserve better".

The 4-0 vote from the Republican-controlled Orange County Board of Supervisors follows actions by other Orange County leaders to resist SB 54. But the goal is to assist agents with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE.

Justice Department spokesman Devin O'Malley welcomed Orange County's decision to support the suit over California's "sanctuary state".

NAF Airlifts Dapchi Girls to Maidiguri
When Boko Haram returned the Dapchi girls on Wednesday, Leah's mother fainted when she realized her daughter was not among them. The mass abduction from the girls' school was an apparent copycat of the 2014 abduction of 270 girls from the town of Chibok.

Officials in Orange County, a traditionally more conservative pocket of liberal California, say the law does not stop sheriff's deputies from giving immigration authorities access to jails to interview inmates.
