People are freaking out after a California sheriff recently announced a huge favor she will be doing for President Donald Trump. Liberals are sure to be pissed off about this.
California is waging an all-out war against Trump and his efforts to control illegal immigration. Over the past few weeks, both parties have filed lawsuits against each other over strongly protected positions on matters affecting illegal immigrants. As California continues to grease the rails of their crazy train, one sheriff in southern California is fighting back with a huge favor for Trump and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
According to Daily Caller, Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens made the decision to begin publishing the release dates and times of inmates which includes both legal residents and illegal aliens who are in the country unlawfully. The information is being added to an existing “Who’s In jail” online database.
The Orange County Sheriff takes seriously our President’s efforts to protect Americans from illegal alien criminals and isn’t being shy about her organization’s desire to work with ICE agents to have criminal illegal aliens deported.
The new information on inmate releases became available starting on Monday, March 26, 2018. This bold decision is a slap in the face to the state’s ultra-liberal leadership which notably decided to declare California a sanctuary state in 2017. I can just see liberal hacks like Governor Jerry Brown and California’s Attorney General Xavier Bacerra having a fit over the sheriff’s decision.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, the policy change will help improve communication between local law enforcement and federal law enforcement. While many liberals are undoubtedly freaking out over the sheriff’s decision, it didn’t come without good reason or provocation from state officials.
On October 5, 2017, the governor of California signed into law SB 54, and it became effective on January 1, 2018. The controversial legislation was designed specifically to interrupt cooperation between local law enforcement agencies and ICE for the purpose of protecting illegal aliens from deportation.
Orange County Undersheriff Don Barnes spoke about Sheriff Sandra Hutchens’ decision to counteract the state’s sanctuary law. “This is in response to SB-54 limiting our ability to communicate with federal authorities and our concern that criminals are being released to the street when there’s another avenue to safeguard the community by handing them over to ICE for potential deportation,” Barnes told the Orange County Register.
Barnes also said that Orange County Officials did not consult with ICE before making the decision to publish inmate release dates and times. ICE spokeswoman Lori Haley wrote in an email late Monday that she would not comment “beyond what the Sheriff has said.”
An official statement published on the Orange County Sheriff’s Department website read in part, “Sheriff Hutchens joined law enforcement leaders across the state in opposing SB 54 when the legislation was first proposed in December 2016, as provisions in the bill hindered collaborative efforts to remove serious offenders from the community. Additionally, the law is inconsistent with widely accepted best practices of open communication amongst all levels of law enforcement. Both Sheriff Hutchens and Undersheriff Don Barnes actively engaged with legislators to encourage defeat of the bill. While these efforts resulted in the removal of some harmful sections of the bill, the final version limited communication in a way that puts the public at risk.”
Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said, “SB 54 makes local law enforcement’s job more difficult and requires bureaucratic processes that could allow dangerous individuals to fall through the cracks of our justice system. My department, however, remains committed to cooperating fully with federal authorities in all areas where I have discretion to remove serious criminals from our community.”
Months before Governor Jerry Brown signed SB 54 into law, Sheriff Hutchens appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight to speak out against the bill and try to convince state lawmakers not to pass it. The video below is a clip of Sheriff Hutchens’ interview with Carlson in July 2017.
