On Tuesday, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to support President Donald Trump’s decision to sue the state of California regarding sanctuary state laws.
California has been a sanctuary state for some time now meaning that illegal immigrants can stay within the state without federal punishment, or local law enforcement action.
This marks a turning point as one of California’s major counties has gone against the state, and supported the president’s actions.
The vote passed 3 – 1 with one member of the board absent.
According to ABC10News:
Among the laws targeted by the legal action is SB 54, which limits cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.
Supervisor Dianne Jacob led public opposition to the laws and said she agrees with U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that they are unconstitutional and undermine public safety.
Liberal controlled counties and cities around the country are starting to see the unconstitutional behavior these sanctuary states are presenting, and luckily, they are starting to take a stand.
