    California AG on reported ICE raids: Regardless of rumors, people have rights

    California AG on reported ICE raids: Regardless of rumors, people have rights

    01/18/18 03:03 PM EST



    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Thursday issued a reminder amid rumors of increased immigration raids in the state that residents and law enforcement officials are expected to abide by state and federal privacy laws.

    “Regardless of what the rumors are, the law is the law, the Constitution is the Constitution and people have rights,” Becerra said at a press conference.

    Immigrants living in California should not believe they don’t have rights, Becerra added.

    Becerra held a press conference to address what he called rumors of intensified immigration raids in the state, particularly in Northern California. He largely avoided discussing the rumors themselves, and instead focused on ensuring that residents are aware of privacy laws.

    He noted a new state law enacted this year, AB450, which prohibits employers from disclosing information that would violate privacy rights of employees.

    “Ignorance of the law is no excuse if you violate it,” Becerra said.

    He added that he expects federal immigration agents and other law enforcement officials to comply with the Constitution, and respect privacy rights of Californians.

    Becerra last week praised a federal judge's decision to block the Trump administration from ending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which grants protection to certain immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children.

    California has positioned itself as one of the staunchest opponents to President Trump’s policies. During the campaign, Trump pledged to crack down on immigration, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement arrests increased within months of his taking office.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) last October signed legislation making California a sanctuary state, meaning state law enforcement officials won’t enforce federal immigration law.

    In addition to immigration, Becerra last year also fought the Trump administration on policies at the Environmental Protection Agency and the decision to roll back the requirement that employers include birth control coverage in employee health insurance plans.

    California Attorney General Xavier Becerra and the rule of law, or is it tyranny?

    I, and many others here who see illegal immigration as destructive to the general welfare of the United States, do want all the actors who violate existing immigration law, PUNISHED TO THE FULL EXTENT OF THE LAW! And this especially applies to those who hold an office of public trust who knowingly and willingly engage in the felonious act of harboring!

    It is bad enough when ordinary American citizens flaunt immigration law for their personal gain or interests. But when those who have taken an oath to support our Constitution and those laws made in pursuance thereof break the law, the door to anarchy has been opened and threatens the very system of government we live under.

    In Federalist Paper No. 47, Madison wrote: "The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny."


    It is a dangerous day in America when the Governor of a State or a local Mayor assumes legislative, executive and judicial powers and imposes their will as the rule of law!
