I am ceaselessly amazed at the degree to which white liberals seek to accelerate their own racial suicide:
Police in California would be prohibited from helping deport some illegal immigrants under a bill being considered by Gov. Jerry Brown, in a proposed change some say would violate federal law.
The so-called Trust Act would bar police from cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers on a variety of cases. Proponents say the bill is narrowly focused and only applies to those illegal immigrants arrested for minor crimes.
Prosecutors and sheriffs disagree.
“If you or I were victimized by someone stealing our identity, selling drugs in our community, burglarizing our home or embezzling our money, that’s okay? That’s a minor crime under this bill,” complained Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle. “If this law passes, we will not be able to put holds on people who have previously been deported. So someone could be deported one, two, three, four — 10 times and that would not be cause for us to put a hold on them.”
The California District Attorneys Association and the California Sheriffs’ Association oppose the law, in part because it also conflicts with federal statutes.
“It makes no sense and is unconstitutional,” said former ICE Director Julie Myers Wood. “The federal government has sole authority to enforce immigration law. In this instance California is telling the feds what you can and cannot do.”
Wood and others find it ironic, considering a dozen California cities boycotted Arizona when it challenged the supremacy of federal authority in immigration enforcement. This time, however, California officials don’t seem to mind challenging that authority.
“We’re asking Governor Jerry Brown to sign the Trust Act that will allow local police agencies to not honor the immigration detainer,” said Carlos Montes, of the Southern California Immigration Coalition. “We need to stop implementing the Secure Communities program that is causing the detention and deportation of thousands of our community.”
