    The back seat of every Minneapolis police squad car will soon display a message in English and Spanish: You have the right to remain silent about your place of birth, immigration status and everything else. Mayor Jacob Frey has promised to keep Minneapolis safe for immigrants as federal authorities ramp up enforcement of immigration laws. After mentioning the placards in his State of the City speech in May, Frey held a news conference Wednesday to reveal them to the public. “Right now, cities have to step up and do what our federal administration and Congress won’t,” said Frey. “We will...
  • State not backing down after judge rules sanctuary law doesn't apply in charter cities

    Despite an Orange County judge’s ruling this week that California’s so-called sanctuary protections for immigrants who are in the country illegally are unconstitutional as they apply to charter cities, state Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra said Friday that the state would continue to uphold its laws. Huntington Beach on Thursday became the first city to successfully challenge the California Values Act, also known as Senate Bill 54, after Orange County Superior Court Judge James Crandall affirmed that the law violates its local control as a charter city — one governed by a charter adopted by local voters. Huntington Beach City Atty....
  • 'Really Unthinkable': AZ Sheriff Calls Out County Board for Rejecting $1.4M Border Security Grant

    The sheriff of Pima County, Arizona said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends" that the rejection by county officials of a $1.4 million federal grant to strengthen border security is puzzling. The board reportedly voted to reject funding from Operation Stonegarden, a program that would bolster cooperation on border security between the federal and local government. Sheriff Mark Napier said that the same board of supervisors accepted the same grant the previous 12 years, and that the vote against it is jeopardizing public safety.

    A man accused of shooting a Colorado Springs police officer in the head in a shootout early Thursday while free on bond was known to immigration enforcement officials, yet evaded deportation despite a string of crimes, court records show. Why Karrar Al Khammasi wasn’t deported was among the questions left unanswered Friday as his bond was revoked. Cem Duzel, the officer he is accused of shooting, remained hospitalized in critical condition. The 31-year-old Iraqi immigrant appears to have lived in the Pikes Peak region for at least five years, and he had at least nine contacts with police in that...

    SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers on Thursday gave final approval to a bill that would place strict limits on the disclosure of a person’s immigration status in open court, continuing the sanctuary state’s rebellion against the Trump administration’s illegal immigration crackdown. Protesters take over Sansome Street in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Francisco, Calif., Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, to respond to the 150 detentions in Northern California by ICE this past week.

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    et me begin with an important question: are you okay with the notion that America will become (and I mean that literally) a sanctuary country in just a couple of years from now? Or, to put it simply, a country with no borders and an “allow anyone to stay” immigration policy? Let me elaborate on one of the most under looked stories of our time: as per a Washington Times report from Friday, quoting the Federation for American Immigration Reform, almost 50 percent (that would be half for millenials) of all Americans now live in a sanctuary city or a...

    While I attended a speaking engagement in Northern California—really Northern, as in Siskiyou County, the heart of the original resistance against Sacramento’s lawlessness—fellow Southern California patriots were continuing their fight against the SB 54, aka the infamous Sanctuary State law. Jurisdictions throughout California have gone on record opposing the law, filing lawsuits or amicus curiae briefs with the Department of Justice, or outright overriding the law through resolutions and ordinances. Sadly, my home city of Torrance and the entire County of Los Angeles County have remained stalwart against the movement. The city of San Dimas (home of Bill and Ted—righteous!)...

    Now that the second largest county in California has joined a growing list of cities opposing the state’s sanctuary policies, an irate Gov. Jerry Brown (D) has vowed “to take vengeance on these lowlifes.” The spark provoking this promise came when the San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted to direct the county attorney to file a friend-of-the-court brief supporting the Trump Administration’s lawsuit against the state’s attempt to flout federal immigration laws. “If these people thought they’ve had it tough before paying for the medical, education, and welfare needs of our undocumented immigrants, I want them to know that...

    Seventh Circuit imposes nationwide injunction on effort to withhold grants from 'sanctuary' locales President Donald Trump's efforts to punish so-called sanctuary cities around the country, as well as the state of California, suffered a serious legal blow Thursday when a federal appeals court in Chicago upheld a nationwide injunction against administration rules requiring localities to cooperate with federal immigration authorities in order to win public safety grants. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld a nationwide injunction preventing Attorney General Jeff Sessions from imposing the new conditions on grant money as a way to penalize municipalities around...

    A federal judge in Los Angeles this week struck down the Trump administration’s policy of denying certain Department of Justice law enforcement grants to cities that adopt “sanctuary” policies and refuse to cooperate with immigration enforcement. The Los Angeles Times reports: U.S. District Judge Manuel Real issued a permanent, nationwide ban against a Justice Department policy that gave an edge to obliging police departments applying for a community policing grant program. In doing so, Real dealt a legal setback to the Trump administration in its aggressive campaign to crack down on illegal immigration and to force compliance from law enforcement...

    I was born in South Korea and raised in Japan. My family moved to the U.S. when I was a teenager and worked through the legal immigration process. It was difficult and time-consuming, but we achieved our version of the American Dream—like the millions who came before us. Today this system is being threatened as California moves closer to becoming a sanctuary state, with local law enforcement under order to disregard federal law and protect illegal aliens. That’s why, as a member of the Orange County Board of Supervisors, I voted to join a federal lawsuit against Senate Bill 54,...

    California officials issued new guidance Wednesday making clear state and local police can — and should — share information about illegal immigrants with the federal Homeland Security Department, in what amounts to a major exception to the state’s new sanctuary laws. Police and sheriff’s departments are still banned from asking about someone’s immigration status and cannot hold illegal immigrants at the request of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. But in instances where they do have information on legal status they are required to share it, as required by federal law, the new guidance says. “This provision does not prohibit inquiries...

    Cities in California are not only correct to challenge California's sanctuary status, it is their national security obligation In California, the City of Los Alamitos has declared that they refuse to abide by California’s sanctuary status. Therefore, they have chosen to opt-out of California’s sanctuary law (A.B. 54). Other cities, and Orange County, are hearing the call, and have decided to follow suit. California cities and counties not only have every right to opt-out of the State’s ill-conceived and unconstitutional sanctuary State status, they are obligated by law to do so. Immigration is a concurrent issue. What I mean by...
