Just days after the Los Alamitos City Council became the first local government to reject California’s ‘Sanctuary City’ policies, other towns across the Golden State are gearing up for a legal fight to help the federal government crackdown on illegal immigration.
According to the Orange County Register, this week’s 4-1 vote in Orange County sent shockwaves throughout southern California; prompting neighboring cities and local governments to weigh similar measures to help protect citizens from rampant homelessness and rising crime.
“There’s a pretty good amount of cities interested and they want to know about the process,” Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar told the Register.
“I thank the City of Los Alamitos for standing up for its citizens and rejecting the so-called ‘sanctuary’ legislation passed in Sacramento, and I urge the County of Orange and all of our cities to do the same,” added Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel.
California’s “unconstitutional” Sanctuary Laws were thrust into the national headlines earlier this week, after three illegal immigrants who evaded ICE raids following a tip-off from the Mayor of Oakland were re-arrested after committing “additional crimes.”
