Senator Joel Anderson talks about “Sanctuary State” Prop. 54 bill

Dear Friends,

Thanks to your help, our petition to stop California from becoming a sanctuary state has nearly 50,000 signatures.

I believe that if we get to 100,000 our impact will be impossible to ignore in the Capitol. I will personally bring the signatures to Governor Brown.

It’s important to look at real life examples to better understand the debate over sanctuary from immigration enforcement.

What does SB 54 actually say? That local law enforcement can’t give ICE personal information about undocumented inmates like their names, addresses, or release dates.

The top law enforcement officials in Kings County are working very hard to educate lawmakers and the public about the real impact of SB 54. They want to make it clear that they have no role in enforcing immigration policy, and they want all residents in their county to feel safe coming forward to report crimes.

They have provided this list as an example of current inmates about whom they would be forbidden from sharing any information with federal immigration enforcement. I hope that my colleagues in Sacramento take a long hard look at this list to understand the kind of people that SB 54 would shield.

I understand that many people are outraged by the federal government enforcing immigration law in public places; however SB 54 will not stop that. No policy created by a city or a state can supersede federal immigration law.

What SB 54 supporters have failed to explain is why there is a compelling public interest in obstructing immigration officials’ efforts to deport felons at the end of their prison sentence, before they are released back into the community. We’re talking about real life felons, such as the ones on the list from Kings County. Local Police and Sheriffs across California have made it very clear they don’t have any role in immigration enforcement – they merely want to cooperate with the federal government to remove dangerous criminals from our communities who prey on citizens and non-citizens alike.

    Subtext, overreach and trajectory – these are why. Examples are now daily of low level officers who take it upon themselves to interrogate and detain people who merely return an overdue book to the library or get hit by a car and need EMT. Those who know history recognize immediately where this is leading.

    BB – where is the example of police interrogating and detaining some one who returned an overdue book? I know history – where do YOU think this is leading?

    BB, this letter is written mainly because I had to respond to “your” own ignorance and biasness in supporting the criminal nature and mindset.

    Sounds like many in the state of California and unfortunately, the USA who would like nothing more than to hand the keys to the state, over to those who left their country because they failed to protect and defend its honor.

    Well BB, history you speak of (repeating itself). Remember it was Rome that fell (like many other once great nations) when they felt that they could take care of everyone they wanted to control.

    If their here illegally, aka against Federal Law, and their worried you say? Are fugitives/assailants worried they are going to be caught when they call for assistance from governmental assistance? aaa yeahh.

    And to continue to ask legal tax paying Americans to fund the take over of America and then to turn it into the 3rd world that most of them left, so they could then become more comfortable living within their culture, with in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, (again being controlled and run by the type of government they left) seems a bit messed up to me.

    Also may I add. California gives Drivers Licence to Illegal Aliens. All you need to vote in California is a drivers license. Illegal Aliens/ non citizens are NOT supposed to vote and are NOT protected by our constitution (which protects citizens of America). Yet California claims not 1 Illegal Alien votes. How can this claim not be refuted?

    God Bless America, our legal Citizens, our president.

    And if you’re here LEGALLY, you shouldn’t worry.which stands to benefit ALL LEGAL citizens. Illegal aliens should be pursued, not does Mexico treat illegal immigrants? 5/ 10 years.and their southern border? Under lock and key,with orders to shoot. Gotcha.and they want us to what? Please Google the word,” mecha”.find out.

    To see where this puzzle is heading for, towards, etc.. just read up on Agenda 21 and the reason why Liberal, criminal protecting, Sancturary City “American Politicians” (lol, lol, what a freaking joke) are so worried that the fight to protect and defend America continues to get bigger and bigger.

    Their NO MORE CARS needed (theory), NATO, GLobal Warming, etc… Agenda (21) of placing people where “they/ NATO” feel they need to be placed, etc. to save the planet.

    For example, as we see, the removal of auto lanes into bike lanes. Why? No more cars and the continued flow of Illegals (who sometimes can’t drive without licenses they can’t get) who bike and walk as part of their daily transportation can grow and increase.

    Allows for less and less cars, and more and more bike lanes to allow more and more Illegals to move freely within OUR Country. Check it for yourself. One reason why Open borders, amnesty Politicians hate Pres. Trump is because he is fighting to stop Agenda 21.

    YET, profit off the same actions while turning over America, into a borderless, subdivided, group of little countries, inside of America Proper.

    President Trump is a crook, in the pocket of Russian crooks. Wrap yourself in the flag, thump the Bible. He’s still a crook.
