California sheriff releases report blaming sanctuary city laws for increase in illegal immigrant recidivism

Orange County, California, Sheriff Don Barnes released a report that suggests the number of inmates in his county with illegal immigration detainers has jumped because of sanctuary city laws the state enacted.

“SB 54 has made our community less safe,” Barnes said in a statement. “The law has resulted in new crimes because my deputies were unable to communicate with their federal partners about individuals who committed serious offenses and present a threat to our community if released.”

“The two-year social science experiment with sanctuary laws must end,” he added.

SB 54, a bill signed into law in 2017, restricts notifications to ICE upon an inmate's release to only the most violent offenders.

ICE requested to be notified of the release of more than 1,500 inmates in 2019, and 238 of those inmates were arrested again for new crimes in Orange County, according to Barnes’s report. Those crimes include rape, robbery, and battery.

That recidivism rate is more than it was in 2018 and also does not include those offenders who committed new crimes outside of the county.

Crimes committed by illegal immigrants in the state of California has long been a controversial issue.

President Trump touched on the situation during his State of the Union address on Tuesday night by inviting the brother of a California man murdered by an illegal immigrant to attend.

At least 3 million illegal immigrants live in the state of California, according to estimates.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
