Orange County Joins Trump Administration Lawsuit Against ‘Sanctuary’ Law in California
California’s Orange County on Tuesday voted to join the Trump administration’s lawsuit against the state’s so-called “sanctuary” law. The state’s law aims to limit local authorities’ collaboration with federal officials in order to shield undocumented immigrants from deportation. Tuesday’s vote by the county’s all-Republican board of supervisors was unanimous. President Donald Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions have put a spotlight on so-called “sanctuary” cities and localities ever since Trump came into office.
