The U.S. Border Patrol is reportedly
fighting back against California’s openly seditious statewide sanctuary laws by
refusing to hand over illegal aliens with felony warrants to police in
This makes perfect sense, according
to the law of unintended consequences. It is an appropriate, tactically
innovative way to counter California’s ridiculous laws that seek to nullify
federal immigration legislation.
Rodney Scott, the chief patrol agent
in the Border Patrol’s San Diego sector, previously said that the Golden
State’s sanctuary laws were making normal cooperation between his agency and
local law enforcement difficult.
This is because California now
largely forbids cooperation with federal immigration authorities, a violation
of the U.S. Constitution’s Supremacy Clause. State law there now imposes
draconian restrictions on communication between local police and federal
immigration enforcement, including information regarding when criminal aliens
are scheduled to be released from local jails.
According to the Daily
Caller, Scott recently entered into evidence a declaration in support of
the U.S. Department of Justice’s lawsuit aimed at California’s reckless sanctuary
In the declaration Scott recounted
several instances in which San Diego sector border agents determined that they
could not hand over custody of a criminal alien to local law enforcement
because local officials could not be trusted to return the alien to federal
custody after processing by the courts.
According to the news report:
“In each instance, the Border Patrol
Agent determined it was not appropriate, consistent with his or her federal
responsibilities to ensure the enforcement of immigration law, to release a
criminal alien to the state and local law enforcement,” Scott said in a court
declaration. “This was because, although the alien was subject to removal, if
released to California law enforcement, the alien would ultimately be released
into the public.”
So now Border Patrol agents, unlike
California officials, are putting the public interest first. This effort aimed
at the lawlessness of sanctuary jurisdictions is something that patriotic
Americans should applaud.
For years jailers in California and
other liberal states have been refusing to honor detainer requests from U.S.
Immigration and Customs and Enforcement (ICE), often with disastrous results.
Felon and serial deportee Jose Inez
Garcia Zarate killed Kate Steinle, 32, on July 1, 2015, after then-San
Francisco sheriff Ross Mirkarimi (D), a wife-beating, driver license-suspended,
gun permit-revoked, illegal alien-loving radical leftist ignored a detainer
notice and put the Mexican national back on the streets.
Since Steinle’s untimely death, others
have been killed by illegal aliens freed by detention centers that refused
to respect ICE detainers, according to a long list compiled by Senate Judiciary
Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa).
For example, in July 2016, Marilyn
Pharis, 64, was raped, tortured, and murdered in her home in Santa Maria,
Calif., allegedly by illegal alien Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez, a Mexican
national, after a detainer was ignored and he was released from jail.
Two months later Danny
Centeno-Miranda, 17, of Loudoun County, Va., was murdered by illegal alien Jose
Espinosa De Dios, a citizen of Mexico, after the perpetrator was set free when
a detainer was ignored.
After Los Alamitos in Orange County
preliminarily approved a local ordinance defying the state law and filed an amicus
curiae brief in the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against California,
officials in Orange County and other cities say they may
also opt out of the sanctuary state law. Officials in Aliso Viejo and Buena
Park and up to another dozen localities are also considering opting out.
"This is important for us, for
our city, for our community," Warren Kusumoto (R), the mayor pro tempore
of Los Alamitos and author of the ordinance said. "We are a little city in
Orange County, but we're tired of things coming out of Sacramento that just
don't make sense, and now others are telling us they feel the same way."
