Ridgecrest City Council votes to oppose sanctuary state, immigration laws
The Ridgecrest City Council on Wednesday voted to support the U.S. in its lawsuit against the state of California challenging state laws AB 450, AB 103, and SB 54. The resolution also states support of “the Constitution and the Rule of Law” and approval of the friends of the court brief filed by the Immigration Reform Law Institute in the lawsuit. A friends of the court brief is a way of indicating support without actually joining the suit.
The gesture is largely a symbolic one.
According to City Attorney Lloyd Pilchen, the deadline has passed to join the friends of the court brief so this is not an immediate possibility. In addition, council has indicated no desire to actually join the federal lawsuit against California for fear of being sued.
The decision was reached after a lengthy and emotionally intense public comment period involving tears, shouting, and the occasional bout of derisive laughter.

Amador Supes Vote To Oppose Sanctuary State Status...Again!
Amador County’s response to the State of California’s status as a so-called “Sanctuary State” was the subject of an often heated discussion before the Board of Supervisors yesterday.
Public comments on the issue were dominated by immigration opponents, who called for supervisors to denounce state law and who were highly critical of undocumented immigrants, calling them dangers to society, a drain on resources and in one case, carriers of decease. On a motion by Supervisor Richard Forster, the board voted to restate their opposition to SB 54, a position that the board had voted for last year, and to submit an amicus, or “friend of the court” brief in support of the Federal Justice Department’s court challenge to the sanctuary law. The motion passed with four votes in favor and Supervisor Frank Axe abstaining.

More than 100 workers at an Ohio gardening and landscaping company were arrested Tuesday when about 200 federal officers descended on the business and carried out one of the largest workplace immigration raids in recent years.
The operation was part of the White House's increasing focus on businesses that hire people in the country illegally amid a broad range of immigration crackdowns under President Donald Trump that include stepped-up deportations, targeting of sanctuary cities and zero-tolerance border policies.
