San Diego County considers suing California over ‘sanctuary state’ law in growing backlash

The pushback against California’s sanctuary state law may soon move from Orange County to San Diego County, where the Board of Supervisors and Escondido City Council will decide soon whether to join the backlash.Escondido Mayor Sam Abed and Councilman John Masson have put an item on the April 4 agenda that would authorize the city’s filing of a legal brief in support of the federal government’s lawsuit challenging three state laws enacted last year.”I expect it to pass,” Abed said Wednesday.The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss the matter in closed session on April 17.

“I’ve always supported the great working relationship between the sheriff’s department and federal law enforcement agencies, and it needs to continue,” said Supervisor Dianne Jacob, adding she intends to support the county joining the lawsuit.Escondido appears to be the first city in San Diego County to tackle the issue.The inland North County city would join the Orange County Board of Supervisors, which on Tuesday voted 4-0 to join the federal lawsuit as a “friend of the court.” Several other cities in Orange County are also beginning to take action against the state’s sanctuary laws.

Senate Bill 54, signed by Gov. Jerry Brown last year, prohibits state and local police agencies from notifying federal officials in many cases when they have unauthorized immigrants in their custody who could be subject to deportation.San Diego County supervisors, all Republicans, will consider the Trump administration’s lawsuit against the state’s sanctuary policy as well as California’s lawsuit against the administration’s decision to ask about citizenship in the 2020 census when members convene in closed session April 17, said a spokeswoman for Supervisor Kristin Gaspar.The board typically doesn’t discuss lawsuits openly, but any decision to take a side in the cases would later become a matter of public record.
