Adler blasts ICE director's threat to jail local elected officials

A California Department of Transportation worker removes a "sanctuary state" sign Monday from the San Bernardino county line on Interstate 15 near the California-Nevada border.

The law prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using personnel or funds to hold or question people, or share information about them with federal immigration agents, unless they have been convicted of one or more offenses from a list of 800 crimes. "And these politicians can't make these decisions and be held unaccountable for people dying".

Homan revealed that he is now working with the Department of Justice to look into whether the federal government can "charge some of these sanctuary cities with violating federal law" and "hold these politicians personally accountable". "Are they violating federal law?"

"Governor Jerry Brown's decision to sign SB54 and make California a sanctuary state for illegal aliens - including those who have committed crimes - will undermine public safety and hinder ICE from performing its federally mandated mission", Homan wrote in a October 6 statement.

"We've got to take these sanctuary cities on, we've got to take them to court and we've got to start charging some of these politicians with crimes", Homan said in a Fox News interview.

The debate over the policies pits those who argue sanctuary policies offer protection to hoodlums against those who say they provide a sense of safety that encourages undocumented residents to report crimes. "We've got to take these sanctuary cities on".

Steinberg was a large proponent of strengthening Sacramento as a sanctuary city for undocumented immigrants and couldn't believe what he was hearing.

"Threatening to jail political opponents, especially for laws they aren't breaking, is not the America I grew up in", Adler said in a statement.

"If he [Brown] thinks he's protecting immigrant communities, he's doing quite the opposite".

A small but influential group of ICE hard-liners-led by Chris Crane, the head of the ICE employee union-viewed Homan's continued presence at the agency as a problem.

"We welcome help from all over the country, because whatever starts in California ends up going across the nation", Rosenberg said. It limits cooperation between local law enforcement and US immigration authorities. "More citizens are going to die because of these policies".

SB-54 forbids local law enforcement to communicate with immigration officials about when a criminal is about to be released from custody, except under special circumstances.

SB-54 bans state and local law enforcement officers from asking the immigration status of anyone during a routine stop, and they are prohibited from arresting illegal aliens based on civil immigration warrants.

The California law, though, continues to allow ICE to detain immigrants throughout the state. "Is there a shred of civility, dignity or intelligence left in this president or in this administration?"
