Anti-‘sanctuary state’ movement picks up steam in Orange County
Other cities in the county, including Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Huntington Beach and Mission Viejo are also starting to take action to voice their grievances against the state’s sanctuary laws aimed at protecting immigrants from President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
On Monday, Texas and more than a dozen other states led by Republican governors got behind the Trump administration and filed an amicus brief in support of a lawsuit against California’s sanctuary laws.
Nelson jumped onboard of a resolution initially brought on by Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel that would condemn the state’s sanctuary laws. She later added wording that would direct the county’s public counsel to take legal action.
“We cannot allow this to happen in Orange County and we need to protect our families and our homes here in Orange County,” she said. “And that means bolstering our cooperation with federal immigration enforcement and stopping our county from becoming a sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants.”
