California: America’s Newest Sanctuary State And Troll Target

American Informer

On January 1st, 2018 California, home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants, became the second state in the U.S. to claim victory as a sanctuary state, Oregon was the first declared sanctuary state back in 1987.

California is known as the laid back, easy going, let-it-ride, let’s-get-high, kind of state, so it’s no wonder they want to be the kind of place for illegals to come and relax.


Gov. Jerry Brown signed SB54, the so-called “sanctuary state” bill, along with nearly a dozen other immigration-related bills on October 5th, 2017. The law, which went into effect January 1st, prohibits state and local law enforcement from arresting people on civil immigration warrants or to inquire about a suspect’s immigration status, among other details.

This means that police are now barred from asking people about their immigration status or participating in immigration enforcement activities. However, officials will still be able to work with federal immigration authorities if a person has been convicted of one of about 800 crimes (mostly felonies and misdemeanors that can be charged as felonies). But they will be barred from transferring immigrants to federal authorities if their rap sheet includes only minor offenses.

Not everyone appreciates California’s easy going viewpoint on illegal immigrants. An unidentified unhappy patron thought it would be funny to place a paper covering over a San Bernardino County sign that greeted Interstate 15 travelers with the words “Felons, Illegals and MS-13 Welcome! Democrats Need The Votes!” A similar sign was put up just west of Needles near the Arizona state line. Both included the California state seal and a Democratic Party logo.

The I-15 paper was removed on Monday along with the one west of Needles. Two more signs near the Oregon border were investigated, and a search for one rumored to be on I-95 north of Lake Havasu proved unsuccessful. Whoever this troll was who printed and put up the signs, clearly made their point and said what many Americans were thinking.


The Trump administration threatens subpoenas and grant cuts if the jurisdictions can’t prove they are complying with federal immigration rules.

In January ICE agents raided 100 7-Eleven stores nationwide and made 21 arrests of suspected illegal immigrants. The raid highlights ICE acting director Thomas Homan’s call for a “400 percent increase” in agency operations focusing on workplaces, the paper reported.

“If you think ICE is going away, we’re not. There’s no sanctuary from federal law enforcement,” Homan said at the beginning of January, referring to California’s sanctuary state status. “They’re about to see a lot more special agents, a lot more deportation officers in the state…if the politicians in California don’t want to protect their communities then ICE will.”

    California is no longer a place to want to go to unless you have no morals .And California expects Americans to continue paying for their illegals who put every American in danger by being here .The representatives in that state boast about being illegal. And have change the state to one being run and in favor of illegals instead of the legal citizens.Thats why no deal no amnesty and deportations of all illegals must take place or there will be no America by 2030 .Do the math !

    Perhaps California might consider seceding from the United States as they already have started the process. The immigration department is here to protect the legal citizens of our great country. Perhaps Washington D.C. might consider enhanced federal immigration enforcement starting with California and make a clear example. As retired Law Enforcement we don’t get to pick and choose . We enforce the laws (which are here for our protection) and we swore to uphold and to do that job without question.

      California keeps threatening to secede. I don’t think they’ve thought it through. A huge number of jobs in California are military, so the bases and related jobs would go away. Can’t have such jobs on foreign soil. California has to import most of it;s power, gas, electric, and much of its water. Selling these to California would the be trading with a foreign power, not interstate commerce. And do you think Silicone Valley would not move to remain in the US? Not saying California wouldn’t do it, but that it wouldn’t be very smart.

      Better we just reverse all the traitorous behavior and laws Governor Brown signed and all the biased corruption of the Mexicans in the state legislature, whose allegiance seems to trend toward illegals since illegals surely have voted in Calif. Some of us native Californians would never think of leaving this beautiful state. Why should we? Make the interlopers, the illegals, leave. That is the point.

    Calling the person who put up the signs a troll is a bad label. I suggest; patriot, conservative, common sense citizen or candidate for public office.

    California has become so liberal that in 15 to 20 years half the state will be paying for the other half who don’t have jobs. That’s called Socialism. I’m glad that I moved out after 37 years of living there.

      There is no wait, right now half the state is working and paying for the half that doesn’t. It wont be long before other states will be paying for the 3/4 of Californians that don’t work, followed quickly for the 7/8 that don’t work , until California sucks the nation dry.

    Start arresting California lawmakers and start pulling federal funding from the state for violating Federal LAW!

    Time to move to another state for sure, I don’t care for Socialism or Communism, and I will not fund an Illegal, no matter what !!!

    Enough! Pull all Federal Funding from both Oregon and California, and I mean ALL funding. Extend the southern border wall to the north and protect the REAL United States from the foreign rapists, murderers, bombers and these seditionist liberal fools. Deport the Witches Pelosi, Sotomayor, Kagan, Ginsburg and High Priestess Clinton to the new Republic of “Orefornia” along with Antichrist McCain and his minion The Obamanator and let them stew in their own juices. Personally, I cannot come up with one thing any of the rest of America would be missing, except trouble.

    All Federal law enforcement personnel should be instructed to not cooperate with California law enforcement or use Federal resources to enforce any California law that is more restrictive than Federal law. Approximately 20% of all law enforcement personnel in California are Federal employees and 40% of the land area within California’s borders are Federally owned. California’s liberal politicians will not be able to challenge this approach in court, as this selective enforcement of laws is exactly what they are doing. Give them a taste of their own medicine. As an example of this policy, ATF agents will no longer enforce California’s restrictive firearms laws or EPA enforce restrictive California environmental laws.

    Lets just leave the murderers and drug dealers there. They will eventually learn the err of their ways.
