California will officially be a sanctuary state starting January 1st, thanks to legislation signed yesterday by Governor Jerry Brown.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Jim McDonnell played a big role in watering down Senate Bill 54.
”It is essentially what we’ve been doing in Los Angeles County for some time and it strikes that balance between public safety and public trust.”
But, Ira Mehlman with the Federation for American Immigration Reform says ICE should have the right to enforce federal laws in the state, just like other federal agencies.
”The FBI, ATF, there’s no problem there, there’s no reason why they can’t do in situations where illegal immigration is involved.”
Ira Mehlman and Sheriff McDonnell were guests on McIntyre in the Morning.
