Los Alamitos, CA city council has voted to reject the states position on sanctuary cities.
Real deal, or grandstanding?
A Southern California town council rebelled Monday night and voted to reject the state’s sanctuary law.
Los Alamitos Council members voted 4-1 to opt out of a state law that limits cooperation between local police and federal immigration agents.
The law, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year and became effective on Jan. 1, includes prohibiting state and local police agencies from informing federal authorities in cases when illegal immigrants facing deportation are released from detention.
Los Alamitos’ adopted ordinance claims the new state law “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution.” The council, therefore, “finds that it is impossible to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States,” if they do not opt out of it.
Los Alamitos declares that bill signed by Gov. Jerry Brown to be “in conflict with the constitution”.
They’re waking up to the fact that, if all in California follow Brown over the immigration cliff, that the government teat will be jerked from their lips.
