    San Diego-area mayors stand together to oppose making California a sanctuary state

    San Diego-area mayors stand together to oppose making California a sanctuary state

    Posted: Mar 28, 2017 10:06 PM PDT Updated: Mar 29, 2017 7:37 AM PDT By Lauren Phinney CONNECT



    SAN DIEGO (KUSI) — A group of mayors in San Diego County are weighing in on the effort to make California a sanctuary state at a joint news conference Wednesday.

    Los Angeles and San Francisco are sanctuary cities. Now lawmakers in Sacramento are considering a bill that makes the entire state that way. Several lawmakers are talking about that effort and their position may not be what you expect.


    "The legislature right now is posturing politically and making a stand at the expense of the safety of people," said Mayor Bill Wells of El Cajon.


    He has started a group called, "Mayors for Safe Cities," opposing Senate Bill 54, the bill they say would make all of California a sanctuary state.


    He said as mayor, his priorities are different from the legislators up in Sacramento.


    "Mayors don't have the same obligations that Legislators have. We have an obligation to keep the people living in our cities safe," Mayor Wells said.


    He said cooperation with the Feds on getting rid of criminal, illegal immigrants is not what some people think.


    "I think that people want to make this a racial thing and they want to make this about immigration. This is not about immigration at all. This is not an anti-immigration stance, this is an anti-crime stance," Mayor Wells said.


    And Mayor Wells isn't standing alone. On Wednesday, seven mayors and a city council member from San Diego County will stand together in opposition to Senate Bill 54, including the mayors of La Mesa, Santee, Poway, Escondido and San Marcos.


    This comes just a day after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he will pull U.S. Department of Justice grants from sanctuary cities.


    Right now, there is no sanctuary city in San Diego County, but Senate Bill 54 would restrict all law enforcement agencies in the state, school districts and universities from cooperating with immigration and customs enforcement.


    Senate Bill 54 was authored by State Senator Kevin De Leon from Los Angeles. It was co-authored by San Diego State Senator, Toni Atkins.

    Los Angeles County, CA with 35,750 removals,

    Maricopa County, AZ (Sheriff Joe) with 27,361 removals,

    and Harris County, TX with 25,564 removals.

    Shasta supervisors oppose state sanctuary bill

    Nathan Solis , Record Searchlight
    Published 5:27 p.m. PT March 28, 2017 | Updated 8:13 a.m. PT March 29, 2017

    Shasta County joined at least one other North State county in firmly saying a proposal to make California a "sanctuary state" goes too far.

    County supervisors voted on Tuesday to send a letter denouncing Senate Bill 54, which would limit law enforcement agencies from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement. They join their counterparts in Butte County in publicly opposing the bill.


    Shasta County Sheriff Tom Bosenko said the bill would restrict the ability for his office to communicate with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.


    “It does put local law enforcement at odds with our enforcement partners,” Bosenko said. This does not mean the Sheriff’s Office becomes an extension of ICE, said Bosenko.


    “Doesn’t mean we’re immigration police. We just want to be able to communicate with ICE.”


    Supervisor Leonard Moty proposed the board send the letter because, he said, the bill creates an unsafe environment for law enforcement and the community of Shasta County.


    “This is a bad bill,” said Moty, former chief of the Redding Police Department.


    Last month, Supervisor Les Baugh introduced the idea of the county designating itself as a non-sanctuary government. He hoped he'd get support to place the item for an official vote on a future board agenda. But three out of four supervisors said it was premature to make such a bold declaration. They said ongoing legal battles in sanctuary jurisdictions could set precedent for other local governments.


    On Tuesday, Moty said the board's opposition to SB 54 was not a continuation of that issue and “we’re not going back to that discussion.”


    The board voted to send copies of the letter to the bill’s author Sen. Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), as well as North State lawmakers Sen. Ted Gaines, Assemblyman Brian Dahle and Rep. Doug LaMalfa.


    Tehama County adopted a resolution in February designating itself as a non-sanctuary county and Siskiyou County has adopted a similar resolution.


    Gaines said many constituents have called to say they oppose SB 54 and he's concerned it would make it harder for state and local officials to turn over violent, illegal immigrant criminals to federal officials for deportation. The state would become “a safe haven for these felons and predators,” Gaines said in an email to the Record Searchlight.


    De León’s bill comes amid a cacophony of actions from the Trump administration, including U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ move to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities in California.


    Moty said he wanted to follow Butte County’s lead in opposing SB 54. Earlier this month, Butte County Sheriff Korey Honea proposed to send a letter of opposition to SB 54, because of the impact it would have on the relationship between local and federal law enforcement agencies. On Tuesday, that county's board unanimously voted to approve the letter of opposition.


    “My point was not to bring back or highlight the sanctuary discussion. I’m fine with the action the (board) took,” Moty said.

    I have noticed most of the noise about making California a Sanctuary State is coming from 1st generation American citizens. The ones that have family members that are or were illegal immigrants. The very people that don't seem to understand the American history. They have bought into the pact of lies that we are a country of immigrants. They do not understand that there are millions of Americans that have not had an immigrant in their family since the 1800's. American's who have been in the melting pot so long that they have no other culture than American. Everyone of our ancestors came to the new colony legally. There were no free rides, no welfare. If they did not have the money to legally purchase passage or get land they became indentured servants. They were not free until they paid off their debts. Our ancestors literally earned the right to be Americans with their sweat, tears and blood.

    Too many first generation citizens still show a fierce loyalty to their parents heritage and put that heritage first. They do not understand that Americans want our American heritage to come first. By redefining our history and referring to all Americans as immigrants they control the dialogue. They do not understand the pride and patriotism that is part of our DNA.

    County Sheriffs Oppose California ‘Sanctuary State’ Bill

    LOS ANGELES—A fast-tracked state Senate bill is awaiting a vote that could turn California into a “sanctuary state.” But county sheriffs say it goes too far.

    Senate bill (SB) 54 goes beyond California’s 2014 Trust Act, which prevents local jails from holding people for extra time based on their immigration status, except for those who have committed certain crimes, such as murder, robbery, rape, or kidnapping.


    SB 54 prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using resources—including facilities, equipment, and personnel—for immigration enforcement purposes without a court warrant. It also prohibits local agencies from sharing important information and leasing jail space to immigration officials. Violators could be subject to civil action, said state Senate president and author of the bill, Kevin de León.


    If the bill passes both the state Senate and Assembly with a two-thirds majority and is signed by Gov. Jerry Brown, it will become effective immediately.


    Sheriff Opposition


    Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell said SB 54 would force immigration officers to operate more in communities, rather than working directly with law enforcement agencies to gain custody of illegal alien criminals.

    “The result of this will be complete and total loss of trust and cooperation with any law enforcement agency,” said McDonnell in a letter to de León dated March 9.


    The bill does allow local law enforcement to notify the FBI when illegal aliens who have been convicted of certain violent felonies are being released from custody, but McDonnell said it falls far short.


    “SB 54 does not seem to acknowledge the following crimes as ‘violent,’ but I certainly do: assault with a deadly weapon, shooting at an occupied dwelling … rape by intoxicating substance … or exploding a destructive device or explosive with the intent to injure, just to name a few,” he said.

    Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens is from one of the state’s few law enforcement agencies that collaborates with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to train designated officers in some immigration enforcement activities.


    “It is my belief that we will have more violent crimes occurring that could have been prevented without this bill,” Hutchens told NBC on Mar. 19.


    Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones said SB 54 is invalid.


    “I have a strong belief that it violates federal law,” he said, at a press conference on March 6. “And federal law reigns supreme.”


    Federal law requires local governments to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security, which runs ICE.


    But local law enforcement cooperation with ICE varies widely across California. Los Angeles County and cities such as San Francisco have adopted sanctuary policies that ignore most ICE requests to detain or report illegal immigrants who are in police custody, even criminals.

    Many government leaders in California have pledged to ignore President Donald Trump’s tougher enforcement orders, saying they want to protect families with members who are illegal immigrants.


    “We’re preparing to defend the state in the court of law if we have to,” said de León, whose mother was an immigrant.


    Nearly one quarter (more than 2 million) of the country’s estimated illegal alien population live in California, according to the Public Policy Institute of California.
