Californian’s Revolt Over State Sanctuary Law
- California in ‘Revolution’ Over State Sanctuary Law
- Democratic Governor Jerry Brown under fire.
Wednesday, US President Donald Trump called out California Governor Jerry Brown (D) and his state’s sanctuary laws, Tweeting that many parts of the Golden State “want out” of the plan.
“There is a Revolution going on in California,” the President Tweeted. “Soooo many Sanctuary areas want OUT of this ridiculous, crime infested & breeding concept. Jerry Brown is trying to back out of the National Guard at the Border, but the people of the State are not happy. Want Security & Safety NOW!”
Earlier in the day, officials in the City of Los Alamitos voted to keep the city out of the state’s sanctuary policy, calling it unconstitutional.
“The Republican Party has this little, narrow group of … people that think that somehow they’re going to get elected” over opposing the sanctuary law, said Governor Brown.
Just before Governor Brown spoke, President Trump Tweeted an attack against the Governor for his plan to allow National Guard troops to the US-Mexico border, but saying their duties will be limited.
“Looks like Jerry Brown and California are not looking for safety and security along their very porous Border,” President Trump said. “He cannot come to terms for the National Guard to patrol and protect the Border. The high crime rate will only get higher. Much wanted Wall in San Diego already started!”
Meanwhile, the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to support The Trump Administration’s lawsuit that challenges California’s sanctuary law. Their 3-1 vote follows a similar action in Orange County, just south Los Angeles, in March.
