Resistance to California’s unconstitutional laws
shielding illegals is growing
By Matthew Vadum
unconstitutional obstruction of federal immigration laws is feeding a growing
backlash by local governments against the state’s unprecedented sanctuary laws
that shield its 2.4 million illegal aliens from U.S. Customs and Immigration

"sanctuary cities," President Trump
told reporters yesterday in Key West, Fla.

need the wall. We have to have the wall. The Democrats don't want to approve
the wall because they think [opposing it is] good politically, but it's not."
He added that human trafficking is "worse than it's ever been in the
history of the world."
"If you look at
what's happening in California with sanctuary cities — people are really going
the opposite way," Trump continued. "They don't want sanctuary cities.
There's a little bit of a revolution going on in California."
patriotic blowback is taking the form of Golden State localities opting out of
the state laws, and in some cases, joining the Trump
administration’s lawsuit against California’s months-old “sanctuary state”
laws that punish compliance with federal immigration laws and provide legal
cover for corrupt officials to continue brazenly flouting immigration laws and
interfering with federal agents trying to enforce them.
big symbolic win for the rule of law, the San Diego County Board of
Supervisors voted 3 to 1 this week to support the lawsuit. With 3.3 million
residents, the county is the largest locality to back the pro-immigration law
enforcement push. Within the county, Escondido’s city council voted 4 to 1 on
April 4 to join the lawsuit.
The Orange County
Board of Supervisors voted unanimously March 27 to join the lawsuit. The county
has a population of around 3.2 million people.
Los Alamitos (population 11,600) was the first to speak
out on March 19 by opting out of the sanctuary laws. It was later joined in
showing support for the Trump administration in one fashion or another by Dana

(140,504), San Juan Capistrano (36,276), Westminster (91,565) and Yorba Linda
In a move
orchestrated by the American Civil Liberties Union and other illegal alien
in Los Alamitos filed a new lawsuit against their city for opting out of the
sanctuary state legal regime.
"You can't hurt
people in your community so you get airtime on Fox News," Jessica Karp
Bansal, litigation director for the National Day Laborers Organizing Network
(NDLON) and an attorney for the plaintiffs was quoted saying.
Antsy Democrats have
been slinging invective and abuse at Los Alamitos officials for weeks.
California Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon (D) said the move by Los
Alamitos to support federal law was "a symbolic vote in favor of President
Trump's racist immigration enforcement policies."
The deadline for
participating in the federal lawsuit has now passed but localities are likely
to find other ways to back the legal proceedings such as by passing resolutions
Paso Robles is
considering becoming the first city in San Luis Obispo County to officially
oppose sanctuary state laws after residents complained they were "under
attack" and facing an "illegal alien invasion," reports
the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
"We live in a
beautiful town, a beautiful place, and we want to keep it that way," local
resident Linda Becker told city council. "Sanctuary cities are
disrespectful to the rule of law."
The federal lawsuit
specifically targets three statutes curbing the power of California’s state and
local law enforcement to hold, question, and transfer detainees at the request
of immigration authorities, and punish employers for cooperating with those
authorities. The laws also impose 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.
No more sanctuary
longstanding doctrine in American constitutional law known as “dual
sovereignty,” states cannot be compelled to enforce federal immigration laws,
but they are obliged not to hinder their enforcement. The so-called sanctuary
cities that form the bulk of the sanctuary movement really ought to be called
traitor cities because they are in open rebellion against the United States,
just like the slave states that seceded from the Union before the Civil War.
movement gave illegal aliens permission to rob, rape, and murder Americans by,
among other things, stigmatizing immigration enforcement and characterizing it
as somehow racist. Some left-wingers use the dreadful euphemism "civil
liberties safe zones" to describe sanctuary jurisdictions. The phrase
deliberately blurs the distinction between citizens and non-citizens by
implying illegal aliens somehow possess a civil right to be present in the U.S.

With luck, federal
prosecutors will soon do less considering, and more charging and indicting.
