Orange County joins DoJ lawsuit against California's 'sanctuary' law

Anti-'sanctuary state' movement picks up steam in Orange County

President Donald Trump Wednesday morning offered his support for Orange County residents and public officials who are opposed to California's controversial sanctuary state laws.

The all-Republican supervisors of the Southern California county of 3.2 million people were expected to discuss passing a resolution in support of Los Alamitos and whether to join the USA government's lawsuit over the law, which bars police in many cases from turning over suspects to federal immigration agents for deportation. One of the five supervisors was absent. "Immigrant-rights protesters rallied outside calling the decision racist and politically motivated".

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

That law, known as SB 54, limits the cooperation of local law enforcement agencies with federal immigration authorities.

Speaking during his opening monologue on "Hannity" Tuesday night, Sean praised Orange County officials who are openly rejecting California's "unconstitutional" Sanctuary City policies; saying the state's liberal legislators are violating federal law.

Sen. Kevin de León, D-Los Angeles, chastised Orange County leaders in a statement Tuesday: "This kind of obsessive immigrant bashing is embarrassing to the county and its residents, and seems created to court the approval of a racist President and his cronies".

Trump's intervention will encourage the revolt in Orange County, a traditionally conservative area that Hillary Clinton carried narrowly in the 2016 presidential election.

More than 60 speakers spoke for and against the anti-sanctuary move, an issue that was dwarfed Tuesday by the county's proposed handling of the homeless. Thirty percent of its residents are immigrants, mostly from Latin America and Asia, according to the US Census Bureau.

Outside the meeting room, several dozen immigrant advocates played music and held signs with slogans such as "Set Our People Free" and "Melt ICE" to urge supervisors not to join the US lawsuit against California. "And now we look back on them and we're ashamed and we know they're on the wrong side of history", Anderson said. "Will you be able to do the same?"

State Sen. Kevin de León, D, who authored SB54, disputed the assertion that the bill harms the ability of law enforcement to hand over risky undocumented immigrants to ICE. "We have to be compliant with the law that was passed, although we didn't agree with it ... It just doesn't make sense", Doris Matyasovich told the board.

Republican congressman Dana Rohrabacher, who represents Orange County, said the sanctuary law was "doing nothing more than attracting millions more people to come to this country and to consume the very wealth that is necessary for our quality of life". "As supervisors of this county, we all took oaths to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and bear true faith and allegiance to it against all enemies", Steel said in a statement after the vote. The sheriff's department used to screen inmates in the county's jails to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents identify those subject to deportation but had to stop when the state law passed.

"Along the way, law enforcement should absolutely co-operate fully within the constraints of federal law", she said.
