ENOUGH: California Sheriff POSTS Release Date of ‘Illegal’ Prisoners for ICE AGENTS

The Orange County Sheriff’s office is fighting back against the state’s “unconstitutional” Sanctuary City law; posting the release date of public prisoners to assist ICE agents in locating and arresting illegal immigrants wanted for deportation.

According to the Orange County Register, the Sheriff’s office updated its “Who’s in Jail” online database Monday, publishing the list of inmates and their scheduled release date and effectively allowing federal immigration agents to apprehend the individuals immediately after leaving the county prison.

“This is in response to SB-54 limiting our ability to communicate with federal authorities and our concern that criminals are being released to the street when there’s another avenue to safeguard the community by handing them over (to ICE for potential deportation),” Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes said.

The Sheriff’s decision comes hours before the County Supervisors vote on whether to officially reject the state’s ‘California Values Act,’ which directly limits local law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal agents in cracking down on illegal immigration.
