Orange County Supervisor Pushing to Opt Out of California's 'Dangerous' Sanctuary Law
Orange County, California, Supervisor Michelle Steel joined Neil Cavuto on "Your World" Thursday to react to some cities and counties pushing back against the state's sanctuary law.
Members of the Los Alamitos City Council voted Monday to opt out of the California Values Act, which limits cooperation between local police and federal immigration agents.
In light of the council’s move, officials in Orange County and the cities of Aliso Viejo and Buena Park also have considered rejecting sanctuary policies.
Steel, who announced Tuesday that she will present an anti-sanctuary ordinance to the Orange County Board of Supervisors, said she's received lots of support from the community.
She said the first duty of government is to protect its citizens, and a law that prevents Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from apprehending criminal illegal immigrants does just the opposite.
"We are not talking about law-abiding illegal aliens. We're talking about criminals on the street. It's very dangerous, and public safety is very, very important in Orange County," Steel said. "We just want to stop these criminals walking on our streets."
She said she hopes that California's 57 other counties join Orange County in rejecting this "bad law," because all Californians deserve to be in a safe environment.
