Residents in Orange County, California have had enough of the state’s ‘Sanctuary City’ policies and soaring homelessness; voting this week to shut-down a proposed ‘tent-city’ near a public park and joining the Trump administration’s lawsuit against the Golden State.
The Orange County Supervisors voted Tuesday to officially reject California’s “unconstitutional” laws that prohibit law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officers; hours after the County Sheriff posted the release date of illegal immigrant inmates online.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra slammed the county’s decision, suggesting his office may launch a legal battle of its own to enforce the ‘Sanctuary City’ guidelines.
“State law is state law. It’s my job to enforce state law and I will do so. We want to make sure that every jurisdiction, including Orange County, understands what state law requires of the people and the subdivisions of the state of California,” Becerra said.
The official’s comments come the same day as residents voted down a proposed homeless shelter near a major park, sparking outrage from locals and business owners.
“They’re just dumping these poor people in our neighborhoods and communities where there are like six schools and, you know, little children walking to school,” said one resident.
