Sheriff Blames Sanctuary Law for California Officer’s Death
we can't ignore the fact that this could've been preventable. And under (the) SB 54 in California (Senate Bill 54, which effectively makes California a 'sanctuary state' by legalising and standardising non-cooperation policies between state law enforcement and federal immigration authorities), based on two arrests for DUI and some other active warrants that this criminal has out there, law enforcement would've been prevented, prohibited, from sharing any information with ICE (the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement) about this criminal gang member. Ladies and gentlemen, this is not how you protect a community. This is not how you assure the people who live in our community, regardless of their ethnicity, their culture, their race, any of that, that they live in a safe community. Because there are people who want to exploit and victimise others. And in this case, officer Singh sacrificed everything, he paid the ultimate price, trying to protect and serve the people of Newman. We need to have a conversation about that."
