    San Jacinto comes out against state sanctuary law

    San Jacinto has become the latest Inland city to come out against the sanctuary state law.

    The City Council voted 3-1 Tuesday night, May 1, to approve a resolution against the law, which provides protections for undocumented immigrants. Crystal Ruiz, Andrew Kotyuk and Russ Utz voted in favor. Alonso Ledezma was against. Scott Miller was absent.

    The majority also voted to file an amicus brief as part of the U.S. Justice Department’s lawsuit against the law — but only if someone else pays for it.

    The meeting at the San Jacinto Unified School District office didn’t draw the large crowd other cities have seen when their elected leaders have discussed the issue. The room was full, but not overflowing. Thirteen people spoke — eight against the law; five in favor of it.

    Kotyuk, a state Assembly candidate, has been organizing anti-SB54 rallies in the region and called for people to attend Tuesday. Some who spoke also have addressed councils in other cities.

    OPPOSE SANCTUARY STATE Tuesday, May 1st | SB 54 PUBLIC SAFETY ALERT - San Jacinto - https://mailchi.mp/61099682a2cc/publ...-agenda-440065

    6:32 PM - 28 Apr 2018

    SB 54, the California Values Act, aims to shield undocumented immigrants from deportation, putting new limits on state and local law enforcement’s ability to help the federal government enforce immigration law.

    The law prohibits police in California from helping immigration officers detain immigrants accused of most non-violent crimes, though police remain cooperative with federal authorities when it comes to holding people accused of violent crimes, multiple drug and alcohol offenses and hundreds of other exceptions.

    Opponents are concerned that undocumented immigrants who commit crimes will be returned to their cities instead of being deported.

    “It’s not about tearing up families and harming children,” Kotyuk said. “We’re talking about prisoners that have been convicted.”

    Ultimately, the decision came down to public safety.

    “This is not about sanctuary baloney,” Ruiz said, “Don’t get mixed up in the politics, this is about protecting your children, this is about protecting your parents.”

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.
