Huntington Beach, California became the second city in Orange County to officially sue the state over its “unconstitutional” and dangerous ‘Sanctuary City’ policies; joining the Trump administration’s all-out legal battle against west coast lawlessness.
According to CBS News, the seaside community’s City Council voted 6 to 1 to sue the Golden State over SB 54: The California Senate bill that severely limits local law enforcement’s ability to cooperate with federal officials regarding illegal immigration.
“More than 100 people were at the meeting to tell the council they wanted to join the Orange County lawsuit, just days after Los Alamitos became the first city in Orange County to leave their sanctuary city status behind,” writes CBS Los Angeles.
“I am very proud of the USA,” said California Congressman Dana Rohrabacher. “I would suggest that those who advocate for sanctuary states are betraying the American people.”
The tiny city of Los Alamitos was thrust into the national spotlight last month when it became the first municipality in California to outright reject the states ‘Sanctuary’ policies; joining the Trump administration’s legal battle to crackdown on illegal immigrants throughout the region.
