#Winning: Are Californians Pushing Back On Leftist ‘Sanctuary State’ Law?

Written by Kevin Fobbs on April 7, 2018

Do you remember during the 2016 presidential campaign when candidate Donald Trump said America would get tired of winning? Well, America’s heartland red state voters can say president Trump keep pouring the winning on, and especially in California. That’s right, according to Breitbart, deep in the heart of the dark blue state, there is an open revolt against the “Sanctuary state” law, in support of the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against the state.

One had to wonder just how long it would take for millions of law abiding residents and their officials to stand up against the liberal tyrants in Sacramento. Year after year, the severely out of touch lawlessness exhibited by the liberal state capitol leaders has unleashed a torrent of criminal illegals onto city streets. For some reason these anti-constitutional, open border supporters felt criminals from across the border needed more rights, privileges and protections than the citizens.

This insanity was not only supported in the state legislature but it was embraced and mandated by its governor, Jerry Brown. It was actually an open invitation for illegal immigrant drug dealers, rapists and murderers to step inside any sanctuary city, and now the state, in order to pillage the innocent citizens without fear of deportation. Now another California city has joined the movement to stop the uprising against the Constitution of the United States.

The city council of Fountain Valley in Orange County voted Tuesday to join the U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit against the state that was filed last month in Sacramento. U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher stepped up the plate and offered Tuesday to foot the bill for the city to file a court brief supporting a federal lawsuit targeting the laws.

Rep. Rohrabacher stated, “Criminals that come here illegally do not deserve the type of protection that this law says,” said Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa). “On top of it, the Constitution of the United States has been established to protect ordinary Americans,” reported the LA Times.

One can only imagine how sickening the acceptance of lawlessness had become in city after city as the illegal criminals robbed, attacked and even threatened law abiding families, students in schools and women and girls on public streets. The sound of crickets could be heard as the cancer of sanctioned illegality grew because of the cowardice of the west coast city and county officials.

Yet, with the election and fierce determination of the new president, a new doctrine of enforcement of the federal immigration laws took root in the leaders who took their oath of office seriously. City leaders, like those at the city council of Escondido in San Diego County that also voted to join the fight by filing a brief in support of the Trump administration’s case by Friday, gave its citizens hope, reports The San Diego Union-Tribune.

There is something liberating about freedom that has been accepted and embraced. It can create a wave of comfort. This comfort and confidence to stand up is now being felt as several Orange County cities, and the county itself, have now joined the open revolt against the state’s sanctuary law.

The notion that standing up for one’s right to be defended against lawless criminal illegals is racist is now being openly dismissed. According to the LA Times, the idea that anti-illegal immigrant sentiment expressed at the Escondido meeting was racism was nonsense according to one meeting attendee. Pamela Pauline of Santa Ana said, “I’m a little tired of being called a racist because I believe in the law.”
