California has been defying federal immigration law for far too long and people are getting tired of it. Even people from California! Some cities in the state are beginning to push back on sanctuary policies and the activity is spreading.
More California Cities Seek to Defy ‘Sanctuary State’ as Revolt Spreads
More California cities may consider defying the state’s “sanctuary state” laws, after the city council of Los Alamitos passed an ordinance defying the state’s controversial new legislation preventing cooperation with federal immigration authorities.
Leaders of Los Alamitos, in Orange County, passed the ordinance 4-1 and instructed the city attorney to file an amicus brief in the ongoing Department of Justice lawsuit against the State of California. The lawsuit challenges the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54).
The Orange County Register reports that other cities — and even Orange County itself — are now thinking of following suit (original links):
The County of Orange and several cities in Southern California soon might join Los Alamitos in its bid to opt out of a controversial state law that limits cooperation with federal immigration officials.
How long do the liberal leaders of California think this can go on? The state seems more interested in protecting illegal immigrants than American citizens.
