BREAKING: Second City in LA County Opposes SB 54 (And More)

The news just gets better and better for California patriots.

While LA County for Trump and other pro-law and order patriots were demonstrating in Santa Clarita for the city to opt out of SB 54, Glendora and Highland also voted to oppose SB 54.

Glendora resident Audrey Teasdale has been contacting her mayor and city council members requesting that the city council oppose the Sanctuary State Law. She did not let up on the pressure and has contacted the city council members for many weeks!

Glendora Mayor Pro Tem Judy Nelson emailed Audrey and informed her that the city council took action on May 8th to oppose SB 54 and stated that the City of Glendora will sign onto the amicus brief for the federal lawsuit. I also called the Glendora city clerk who confirmed that the city council, unanimously, opposed SB 54 and will sign an amicus brief in support of the federal lawsuit. There is no information published online at this time.

Thank you to Audrey for staying on top of her city council!

The city of Highland, in San Bernardino County, also voted to oppose SB 54 and send letters to all concerned local, state, and federal officials on the matter.

The Highland Community News reports:
In a chamber dominated by critics of Senate Bill 54, the “sanctuary state” law, Highland became the 15th Southern California city to express its opposition Tuesday night.

On a 3-2 vote with Councilman Jesse Chavez and Councilwoman Anaeli Solano dissenting, the council voted to send letters to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, California Gov. Jerry Brown and others arguing the prior law adequately protected the rights of incarcerated individuals.

Patterned after a letter sent by Yucaipa City Council, which voted last month to oppose the law, Highland’s protest cites the Dec. 2, 2015, attacks in San Bernardino as an example of local, state and federal agencies working together.

That's a fresh perspective on SB 54, since the legislation forbids cooperation between state and federal officials, and federal agencies work with ICE in a number of capacities.

“Yet, despite input from sheriffs, police chiefs and many other experts, the Legislature adopted this ill-advised barrier to otherwise lawful cooperation and communication between these agencies for law-enforcement purposes,” the letter says.

Between 30 and 40 people were in the audience, the largest turnout of the year. Nine speakers spoke against SB54, one spoke in favor and two urged the council not to take a position.

Incredible. It's good to note that more people across the state, men and women who normally have not attended a city council meeting before, are now holding their governments accountable.

Chavez made a motion to take no action and Solano seconded it. Mayor Larry McCallon countered with a substitute motion in support of the letter.

However, City Attorney Craig Steel, who wrote the staff report on the issue, advised the council to vote on Chavez’ motion first.

It failed 2-3 and McCallon’s motion was approved 3-2.

Formally known as the California Values Act, SB54 was approved 27-11 in the California Senate on a party-line vote.

It passed the Assembly 51-26 with two Democrats and all Republicans opposed. The governor signed the bill in October and it became law on Jan. 1.

Here are some of the remarks from the city council:

“I’m for SB54 on behalf of my constituents,” Solano said.

Councilman John Timmer said he immigrated to the United States in 1953 and became a citizen five years later.

“I’m a strong believer that we are a nation of laws,” Timmer said.

“The California Legislature can’t decide which laws it is going to obey and which ones they will disregard.”

He said that what Sacramento is doing is inappropriate.

Timmer’s comments drew a smattering of applause, which prompted the mayor to threaten to have the room cleared.

Decorum at all costs is essential.

McCallon pointed out that the Sheriff’s Department reports the names of inmates, so they are available to the public and federal immigration authorities.

He added that a lawsuit has already been filed against SB54, so there’s no point in the city taking a risky legal position.

“Since SB54 has a direct effect on the safety of our citizens, I do believe the city should go on record by writing a letter to the governor and others expressing our opposition,” McCallon said.

The cities of Apple Valley and Victorville will take up this issue in subsequent city council meetings, too. This is happening, everyone, right here in the state of California, one segment of the Left Coast which the rest of the country had written off as unsalvageable. 

That is simply not the case!
