More California Cities Seek to Defy ‘Sanctuary State’ as Revolt Spreads

by JOEL B. POLLAK   21 Mar 2018

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.


Officials with the county as well as leaders in Aliso Viejo and Buena Park said Tuesday they plan to push for various versions of the anti-sanctuary ordinance approved in Los Alamitos late Monday by a 4-1 vote of that city council.


Immigration advocates said Los Alamitos and cities and counties that follow its opt-out ordinance will be violating state law and at risk of litigation.


But Los Alamitos’ anti-sanctuary push also received wide attention in conservative media, and gained support from those who don’t agree with California’s protective stance on all immigrants, regardless of legal status.

Orange County is a key battleground in 2018, both at the state and federal levels. Democrats are hoping to pick up several U.S. House seats in the county, which voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016 — the first time in decades that the traditionally conservative county had backed a Democrat.

  1. “… California cities may consider defying the state’s “sanctuary state” laws…”

    It is important to remember that the US CONSTITUTION (not those who SERVE WITHIN the US government) is the supreme Law of this land where it holds jurisdiction as is written. It so happens that immigration was an authority that was delegated from each state to the federal government.

    So if there is any problem for cities, etc that stand for the US Constitution, then the person who serves as the US President and is required to Preserve, Protect, and Defend the US Constitution has Lawful authority to charge them with the crimes those who serve within that state’s government has committed (starting with a felony or two for breaking the Oath of Office – yes, it is a crime, and Perjury), assist in their removal by Lawful means, and most likely require a special election for the people of that state.

    This would also be a really good time to assist in the separation of California into three different sovereign states, Jefferson (part of southern Oregon/northern California, North California (north California to ~ Sacramento county), and California (rest of the way south).

    We the People might also want to look at some of the “Amendments” that were added to the US Constitution without the proper ratification required such as the 16th Amendment (ever properly ratified because several states intentionally attempted to modify the language of the proposed amendment and so did not ratify the actual amendment proposed by Congress as they are required to ratify it as it is written – NO changes). We should never close our eyes as to what any of our representatives are doing, and we are REQUIRED to hold them accountable for their actions while serving.

    1. Why do we never see a politician removed from office when they go against the Constitution?… How can four of the nine Supreme Court Justices not understand the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed and be allowed to stay on the Supreme Court? Why do the politicians in California getaway with thumbing their nose at the Constitution. And why to those in power not see these obvious problems?………… must be what our forefathers warned us about!… Yet nothing gets done! Ummmmmm, there must be a solution to this!?
