LOS ANGELES, CA – The growing grass-roots revolt against California’s Sanctuary State laws moves to this weekend’s California Republican Party convention in San Diego, where delegates will vote on an anti-Sanctuary State resolution co-authored by Attorney General candidate Eric Early. The resolution would put the CRP on record supporting the US Justice Department lawsuit to overturn California’s controversial Sanctuary State laws and backing “the efforts of California’s citizens to opt-out of, and/or join in the Action against, the Sanctuary State Law.”
“A brushfire revolt against the radical Sanctuary State law is sweeping across California as city after city take action to oppose or repeal SB 54,” said Early. “It’s a spontaneous revolt against the radical ideologues in Sacramento like Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who are more concerned with providing sanctuary for criminal illegal immigrants than ensuring the safety of law-abiding Californians.”
During the past several weeks, more than 30 cities and counties across the state have voted to opt-out of SB 54, join the federal lawsuit or take other official action opposing SB 54. Early pointed out that SB 54 is putting Californians in real danger by releasing violent criminal illegal immigrants back into our communities.
“Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said that between January 1 and March 19, SB 54 prevented her department from habding 172 criminal illegal immigrants over to ICE,” said Early. “Those inmates were charged with sexual assault, child cruelty and domestic violence, among other offenses. Instead of being deported, they’re back in our communities thanks to SB 54. The should give sanctuary to the law-abiding, not criminals who are in our country illegally.”
“These Sanctuary State laws are unconstitutional, unsafe and unconscionable,” said Early.
