County supervisor defends sanctuary vote as local Dems lash out

County supervisor defends sanctuary vote as local Dems lash out

California Has Spoken! San Diego County voted Tuesday to become the latest in a string of local governments throughout California backing the Trump administration lawsuit against the state over its sanctuary city laws.

"We're talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime", said Jacob, whose district covers much of East San County. It will affect public safety and public health.

Like San Diego County, the city of 12,000 argues that the federal government - not the state - has authority over immigration, the same argument made by the Trump administration. Supervisor Greg Cox cast the dissenting vote while Supervisor Ron Roberts was absent on an worldwide trip, but released a memo ahead of the vote "urging" his colleagues "to stay out of this issue".

Since the September 11th attacks, policymakers across all levels of government have pushed for greater communication and synthesis between federal and local law enforcement authorities, Gaspar said.

Action: Board of Supervisors voted to support the Trump administration's lawsuit against California.

Communities across California are continuing to break rank with the state over its immigrant sanctuary law, siding with the Trump administration's lawsuit against state policies that limit local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration agents.

The U.S. Department of Justice is suing California over three laws: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (), and the California Values Act (). "Because in San Diego County we manage a $5.7 billion budget on the county Board of Supervisors".

The cost of housing in San Diego County and lack of affordable options has prompted many people to move to Riverside County, where the median home costs $354,600.

State Senate President Pro Tem Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, said the state's recent immigration policies were carefully crafted to abide by the Constitution. Supervisor Greg Cox, whose district covers the South Bay, voted against it. Supervisor Ron Roberts, who represents central San Diego, was traveling overseas and did not attend the meeting. "We were safer before SB54".

"The sanctuary state law is not only unconstitutional, but it is a real threat to public safety because it forces local government to harbor and shield violent criminals", said DeMaio, a former San Diego City councilman.

It also requires the California Attorney General to set policies limiting assistance with immigration enforcement at public schools, libraries and hospitals. "Gov. Brown needs to follow the laws of our Constitution".

Supervisor Dianne Jacob said that she expects the lawsuit to prevail, and they would file when the state appeals the decision. But opponents say it stifles federal efforts to detain criminals.

Gov. Jerry Brown elicited rare and effusive praise from Trump last week for pledging to contribute 400 troops to the National Guard's deployment to the Mexican border.

Two North San Diego County mayors-Escondido's Sam Abed and San Marcos's Jim Desmond-also called on the Board to support the Trump administration's lawsuit. We wanted to take a closer look.

Gaspar is running for the congressional seat left open by Rep. Darrell Issa's retirement. Thirty-nine speakers urged the board to not support the lawsuit, which they said would tear apart families and keep many immigrants from reporting crimes because of fear of deportation.
