The push-back against California Governor Jerry Brown and his state’s lawless illegal immigration policies and Sanctuary Laws, has snowballed into a movement.
Last month, I wrote a blog about Los Alamitos joining the Trump administration’s Federal lawsuit against the State of California. Los Alamitos was the first on the bandwagon, with many more jumping on at a quick pace.
Shortly thereafter, Huntington Beach voted 6-1 to challenge the Sanctuary laws, and is considering being the first city in California to sue the State separately from the Federal lawsuit.
Then, the Orange County, CA Board of Supervisors voted unanimously last week to join the lawsuit as well. Apparently feeling the heat of the growing movement, California Attorney General Xavier Becerra threatened the Orange County sheriff’s office with the possibility of arrest. Regardless of the threats from California AG Xavier Becerra, the movement continues on!
Last night, the Escondido City Council voted 4-1 to support the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California’s so-called sanctuary laws.
San Diego County is next up to possibly join the Federal lawsuit against California. They are scheduled for a similar closed door vote on April 17th.
You can hear more from the Mayor of Escondido, Sam Abed, along with Kristin Gaspar, the Chairwoman of the Board of Supervisors of San Diego County in this interview on April 3rd, by Shannon Bream of Fox News:
