Eric Early: “Xavier Becerra’s Veiled Threat To Arrest Orange County Sheriff Hutchens Is A Disgusting Display Of Partisan Extremism”

LOS ANGELES, CA – Today, top Republican candidate for California Attorney General, Eric Early, issued the following statement in response to Xavier Becerra’s disgusting veiled threat to arrest Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens.

“Let me be very clear, I stand shoulder to shoulder with Sheriff Hutchens and the people of Orange County in opposition to California’s dangerous sanctuary state law and Xavier Becerra’s disgusting display of partisan extremism. Becerra is protecting illegal immigrant felons over the law-abiding, duly elected Sheriff of Orange County. Make no mistake, we are not talking about the hardworking immigrants that came to our state to find security and prosperity for their families—Becerra is choosing to protect people who came here illegally and then committed crimes, often repeatedly and violently, over the hardworking, law-abiding, taxpaying citizens of our state. The people of California will no longer stand for Sacramento Democrats’ alt-left policy of marketing our state as a safe haven for violent illegal immigrant felons.”

Top Republican Attorney General Candidate Eric Early Issues Statement on Sacramento Shooting

“The events in Sacramento, as with any police involved shooting, are specific to the facts and the law of the individual situation. Critical incidents such as this should never be prejudged. In such situations there should never be Monday morning quarterbacking.

“There are some times where the police make tragic mistakes, and there are thousands of times where the police act heroically in protecting every one of us, of all races, religions, creeds, colors and sexual orientation. Each such situation should be fully investigated so that a fair and impartial assessment of the facts and the law can be made.

“Unelected Attorney General Becerra should not turn this into an exercise of political pandering, but should instead approach the investigation in a fair and impartial manner. Along these lines, Al Sharpton should stay in New York. He has exhibited in the past that he does not care about the law or the facts, and predictably has again started to take the low road of inflaming an already difficult situation for his own personal publicity and to line his pockets.

“The good and decent people of the victim’s family deserve a fair and impartial investigation. Stephon Clark deserves it, and the officers involved deserve it.”

Eric Early: All Cities & Counties Should Exempt Their Citizens From The Danger of CA’s Sanctuary State Law

“Our loyalty is to the U.S. Constitution, Not Politically-Correct Laws To Protect Illegal Alien Felons,” says Early

LOS ANGELES, CA – Top Republican Attorney General candidate Eric Early praised the Los Alamitos City Council vote last week to exempt the Orange County city from California’s dangerous Sanctuary State law. According to news reports, other cities and the County of Orange are considering similar resolutions.

“All California cities and counties should follow the lead of Los Alamitos by exempting their citizens from the danger of California’s sanctuary state law,” said Early. “The hardworking, law-abiding citizens of our state will no longer accept Sacramento Democrats’ alt-left policy of harboring illegal alien felons. As Attorney General, I will do everything in my power to get all criminals off our streets and out of our neighborhoods.”

“Los Alamitos ought to be a wake-up call to Xavier Becerra and other ideologues that everyday citizens are fed up with the extremism that elevates protecting illegal alien criminals over law-abiding citizens. It’s one-party rule run amok,” said Early. “Los Alamitos citizens are brave pioneers who had the courage to buck the unconstitutional laws coming out of Sacramento.”

“Partisan activists like Becerra and Dave Jones are trying to dictate to us how we should act, speak and think – regardless of whether a majority of Californians agree with them or not,” said Early. “They have gone too far, and the people are starting to push back.”

“Elected officials take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. The members of the Los Alamitos City Council acted bravely on that conviction. Xavier Becerra should follow their example,” said Early. “Our loyalty is to the U.S. Constitution, not politically-correct laws to protect illegal alien felons.”

“The people of Los Alamitos have spoken and more local governments will follow their brave lead,” said Early. “As Attorney General, I will stand with the people of Los Alamitos and the other courageous citizens of California who are showing all of us Democracy in action.”

Eric Early Goes On Offensive Against Becerra and Jones at Attorney General Debate

LOS ANGELES, CA – Attorney General candidate Eric Early went on the offensive against appointed incumbent Xavier Becerra and Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones at the first Attorney General debate of the campaign, held yesterday in Sacramento.

Early took Becerra to task for ducking the debate:

“It’s a sign of his arrogance that he isn’t here. He has thumbed his nose at California voters by not being here.”

Noting that “We are a country of laws,” Early criticized Becerra and Jones for their support for sanctuary state laws that jeopardize public safety by being used to exclusively protect a group of undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes – primarily violent crimes – since they got here. He also expressed support for the U.S. Justice Department’s lawsuit seeking to overturn California’s sanctuary state laws and he publicly thanked the brave people of the City of Los Alamitos for having the courage, by showing all of us Democracy in action, to opt-out of Sacramento’s sanctuary laws.

“Xavier Becerra cares more about protecting criminals who are here illegally than protecting law abiding citizens,” Early charged.

Early said he would protect those undocumented immigrants who have arrived here illegally but are working to be part of American society and otherwise are abiding by our laws.

Early also stressed we must secure our borders to stop the flow of illegal immigration, whether from Latin America, Asia, Europe or anywhere else.

Early castigated the appointed Attorney General for being “obsessed” with Trump and wasting millions on needless lawsuits against the Administration while ignoring the public safety issues here in California.

Early said that as Attorney General, he “would be law abiding citizens’ best friend” but no friend to law breakers.

Eric Early for Attorney General Endorsed by Congressman Darrell Issa

LOS ANGELES, CA – Veteran Congressman Darrell Issa has endorsed Eric Early for Attorney General, the Early campaign announced today.

“I am deeply honored to have earned the endorsement of such a distinguished public servant,” said Early. “Darrell Issa is truly an American success story: A working-class kid from Cleveland, Ohio and Army veteran who turned an idea into a massively successful business by working hard and believing in himself, and then devoting himself to public service for the last 18 years.”

“California needs government to get out of the way,” said Early. “When I am Attorney General, the Department of Justice will be a friend to job creation, business formation and hard working Californians. I will target actual criminals rather than wasting taxpayer resources prosecuting employers for following federal law.”

Darrell Issa was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2000, representing the voters of northern San Diego County and South Orange County, and has been re-elected by the voters eight times. From 2011 to 2015, he served as Chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee. In January 2018, Issa announced he would be retiring from Congress at the end of his current term.

Issa served as CEO of Directed Electronics, which he founded in the mid-1990s and built into the nation’s largest manufacturer of vehicle anti-theft devices. In 1994, Issa was named Entrepreneur of the Year by Inc. Magazine, Ernst & Young and The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Statement by Attorney General Candidate Eric Early On U.S. AG Jeff Sessions’ “Sanctuary State” Speech in Sacramento

LOS ANGELES, CA – Attorney General candidate Eric Early issued this statement on U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ speech this morning calling for an end to “Sanctuary State” laws that obstruct federal immigration authorities from discharging their lawful duties:

“The federal government is suing California because politicians like Xavier Becerra are recklessly interfering with federal law enforcement. They’re abusing their power to promote Sanctuary State policies that protect a group of illegal immigrants suspected of committing crimes, and endanger law enforcement and the law-abiding public.”

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions said ICE isn’t asking state and local enforcement to round up all illegal immigrants – all federal immigration authorities want is for Becerra and other officials to stop actively obstructing the enforcement of federal laws.”
