President Trump Backs Orange County Revolt Against California's 'Sanctuary State'

But sanctuary law opponent and Sherman Oak resident Genevieve Peters, during a celebration in the board chambers after the vote, said sanctuary opponents are on the right side of history, and the right side of the Constitution.

The country lawmakers oppose the California Values Act, which prohibits local law enforcement from asking about immigration status and bars local authorities from detaining undocumented immigrants for federal authorities to pick up.

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.

The agency's goal is to help U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents "remove unsafe offenders from our community".

Comparing the incident to an oft-used refrain by immigrant rights advocates who complain that deportations separate immigrant families, Robinson told the board: "Kate's family is forever separated from her". "Will you be able to do the same?"

"We can not let the state begin cherry-picking which federal laws it decides to follow". "Our constitutional republic depends on following the rule of law".

Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes defended his department's decision Tuesday night to make public the release times of inmates, including illegal immigrants.

The move comes after California passed a law limiting local police collaboration with deportation agents.
