The Orange County Sheriff’s Department has announced that it will begin publishing a list of criminal aliens who are inmates in the county jail, as part of its existing “Who’s in Jail,” online database.  The information made public will also include when criminal aliens are released from jail, a move that comes in direct retaliation to the state’s “sanctuary” laws which prohibit cooperation between police and federal immigration officials.
“This is in response to SB-54 limiting our ability to communicate with federal authorities and our concern that criminals are being released to the street when there’s another avenue to safeguard the community by handing them over (to ICE for potential deportation),” Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes said.
California’s “sanctuary law” has recently encountered resistance to this dangerous policy from multiple communities in California. Most notably, the City Council in Los Alamitos voted last week on an ordinance to exempt the city from state law over concerns that it is unconstitutional.

Troy Edgar, Mayor of Los Alamitos: “When [California] passed the sanctuary law, this law basically conflicts directly with my oath of office… to support and defend the Constitution.” 

The Yorba Linda City Council agreed to file an amicus brief to a lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice against California.  The Orange County Board of Supervisors are also expected to consider a range of possible actions against the state law as well.

Open borders groups like the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) have been actively working to prevent cities in California from opposing the states “sanctuary” laws.

Revolt Against California’s ‘Sanctuary State’ Laws Grows in Orange County

The revolt against the State of California’s “sanctuary state” laws is growing in Orange County, with supervisors scheduled to discuss a resolution Tuesday condemning the state’s defiance of federal immigration law, and possibly directing the county to join the federal lawsuit against the Golden State.

The discussion, the Los Angeles Times notes, will take place in closed session, but the results will be closely watched, as numerous cities within the county are considering following the lead of Los Alamitos, which voted last week to defy the “sanctuary state” laws and join the federal lawsuit.
The Times reports:
These state laws are preempted by federal law,” Orange County Supervisor Shawn Nelson said. “Our officers actually face penalties under state law if they so much as talk to federal agents for the wrong thing. That’s just unacceptable and it’s contrary to federal law.”
Other cities in the county, including Yorba Linda, Buena Park, Huntington Beach and Mission Viejo are also starting to take action to voice their grievances against the state’s sanctuary laws aimed at protecting immigrants from President Trump’s immigration crackdown.
In related news, on Monday, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department decided to defy the state — and obey the federal government — by making public the release dates of inmates in its jails, including illegal aliens.
And more than a dozen Republican-governed states joined the federal government Monday in its lawsuit against California’s sanctuary state laws, which was filed in Sacramento earlier this month as Attorney General Jeff Sessions visited the city.
The U.S. Department of Justice is suing California over three laws: the Immigrant Worker Protection Act (HB 450), the Inspection and Review of Facilities Housing Federal Detainees law (AB 103); and the California Values Act (SB 54).
The battle over sanctuary cities in Orange County could have a big impact on midterm elections in California and nationwide. It could motivate Republican voters to turn out to the polls, counteracting an expected Democratic wave.
Democrats are targeting several Republicans in Orange County, after Hillary Clinton carried the county narrowly in the 2016 presidential election — the first time in decades that a Democrat had won the traditionally conservative county.
The California seats are considered crucial to Democrats’ goals of flipping 23 seats to regain the majority in the U.S. House of Representatives and putting House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) back in the Speaker’s chair.
The National Republican Congressional Committee recently announced plans to open a new office in Irvine, meaning that both parties will have extensive field operations in Orange County, according to the Orange County Register.

Border Patrol Agents Find 12 Migrants in Locked in Trailer, Trunk

Border Patrol agents in the Tucson Sector arrested a man on human smuggling charges after finding 10 illegal immigrants locked in a trailer being towed by the suspect.

Agents assigned to the State Route 90 Immigration Checkpoint observed a Chevy Suburban towing a small trailer as it approached on March 26. At the initial checkpoint, a K-9 agent alerted on the trailer. The agents referred the driver to the secondary inspection station, according to information received by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
After unlocking the trailer, agents discovered nine men and one woman hiding among the trailer’s cargo. Initially, plywood and large bags of cans hid the human cargo from the eyes of Border Patrol agents. After removing straps from the plywood and removing the panels, agents removed the bags of cans and extricated the illegal immigrants from the trailer. The driver also had large appliances in the back of the trailer, adding to the danger experienced by the migrants.
Agents arrested the driver, a U.S. citizen from Hereford, Arizona, on human smuggling charges. Border Patrol officials seized the Suburban and the trailer.
After re-hydrating the migrants with water, agents transported them to the Wilcox Border Patrol Station for processing on immigration violations.
Transporting illegal immigrants in a poorly ventilated trailer packed with appliances and other cargo places the migrants in grave danger of dehydration, heat exhaustion, and physical injury, officials stated. As summer approaches, the danger becomes more pronounced. Additionally, the locked trailer causes additional danger in the event of a crash.
On March 23, Nogales Station agents arrested two women from Phoenix for smuggling two illegal immigrants in the trunk of their car. The driver, an 18-year-old U.S. citizen, had her infant son traveling with her during the smuggling effort. A 38-year-old Phoenix woman was also traveling in the car.
After the vehicle stopped at the Interstate 19 Immigration Checkpoint, agents referred the driver to a secondary inspection station. Agents opened the trunk and found two men.
The agents questioned the men and determined they are Mexican nationals, 20 and 40-years-old, illegally present in the U.S. The agents transported the men to the Nogales Station for processing on immigration violations.
Agents arrested the two women on charges of human smuggling while the Arizona Department of Child Safety took the infant son into protective custody.
