Rohrabacher Praises OC Supervisors’ Action on Illegal Immigration
WASHINGTON – Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA, today released the following statement on today’s vote by the Orange County Board of Supervisors to join the federal government’s lawsuit against the State of California regarding its immigration policy:
I heartily applaud the decision by the Orange County Board of Supervisors to defy Sacramento’s lunatic immigration policy. The state’s Democrat politicians have placed local law enforcement in the untenable position of choosing whether to obey them or cooperate with federal law enforcement. Governor Brown and Attorney General Becerra distort the Constitution beyond recognition by fantasizing that the state, not the federal government, reserves to itself control over immigration. Their misconceived policy has led directly to more crime. It has misdirected public expenditures to encouraging illegal immigration, an outlandish misuse of taxpayers’ dollars. Today local government in Orange County declared an overdue rebellion, soon to be joined by others..
