President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday, March 28 to express his support for the efforts of some in Orange County to fight Californias sanctuary laws.
“My Administration stands in solidarity with the brave citizens of Orange County defending their rights against Californias illegal and unconstitutional Sanctuary policies,” he tweeted. “Californias Sanctuary laws release known dangerous criminals into communities across the State. All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders.”
….release known dangerous criminals into communities across the State. All citizens have the right to be protected by Federal law and strong borders.

The Orange County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to join a lawsuit filed by the Justice Department that alleges three California laws are unconstitutional.
Los Alamitos was the first Orange County city to take a stand against SB-54, a California law that limits cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities.
