Trump Administration Challenges California Sanctuary Law in Supreme Court

Trump should just cut federal funding from the state. They don’t follow the constitution anyways.

The Trump administration has petitioned the Supreme Court to strike down California’s “sanctuary law,” which hinders cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.

The administration is challenging several provisions in the California Values Act, or S.B. 54. The law prohibits officials from sharing information with ICE about a suspect’s release from custody, eliminating any opportunity for ICE agents to take illegal immigrants into custody before they are released from local jails. It also prohibits local law-enforcement officers from sharing physical descriptions of suspects with immigration authorities.

“The practical consequences of California’s obstruction are not theoretical; as a result of SB 54, criminal aliens have evaded the detention and removal that Congress prescribed, and have instead returned to the civilian population, where they are disproportionately likely to commit additional crimes,” the Trump administration argued in its petition, which was filed Monday.

This should to be an easy win…and a nice precedent.

Gavin Newsom’s world is collapsing…he can’t even keep the damn lights on, the state is flat broke, and the streets are full of illegals and homeless and there’s feces everywhere.

If there is any true justice the executive branch will win on this issue. If one remembers, when Arizona wanted to enforce border controls that the Obama admin ignored, the Arizonians were promptly sued and the Supreme court gave the win to the do nothing feds. However, that requires consistency from the court, we’ll see.

Even if the SCOTUS rules against the progressives, they will continue anyway in defiance of the law. The left in the most densly populated areas of CA have enjoyed complete one party rule, they believe they are gods daring the rest of the country to come and stop them.

Of course all of this sanctuary city garbage is completely unconstitutional. The Constitution gives exclusive authority to the Federal government to deal with immigration. California cannot do whatever it wants to hinder this power. Why? Because they agreed to it when they applied to be a State.

Sanctuary citys’ population counts should be subtracted from California’s Electoral College votes. The Democrats pulled the same thing with Slaves in the South prior to the Civil War. They want their victims to remain powerless and totally under their control but they want them to count when it comes to sending members to Congress and partitioning out Electoral votes.

It’s about damn time this Sanctuary City bullshit got to SCOTUS. California’s law amounts to a secessionist action. Strike down California, then the rest of the cities, counties, and states go down along with it.

That is the truth. No one has the backbone to actually enforce the law and bring the politician’s who obstruct it to a jail cell in cuffs.

Here is an idea for ya! It could end up being very very bad for the state of California especially when one considers the possibility of a looming Government shutdown in the coming weeks that requires Trump’s signature. The state is in some serious trouble fiscally and heavily relies on federal funding and any shutdown will certainly have an effect on its bottom line. Politics is down stream right? California created their mess which requires that they clean it up themselves instead of trying to put a mask on their malfeasance of corruption! Sometimes it’s just better to ripped the bandaid off! The state literally is on fire and that alone should be a sign where it’s future is headed!

Law enforcement officers should never be put in a position to let known offenders walk right out the door because their elected officials said so. The law is the law and it must be upheld. SCOTUS had better rule right on this one.
