“We’re here to ensure accountability.”

A public accounting in the real OC for the OC Sheriff and Supervisors’ use of county resources for immigration enforcement, a thread!

#UncoverTheTruth #ICEoutofCA #ICEoutofOC #BastaHate #TruthForum #DefendSanctuary #SanctuaryCities
California law requires a public accounting for counties engaged in immigration enforcement, for ex. transferring people to ICE custody. One of many state policies enacted in response to a decade of expansion of jail deportation operations. #truthforum #truthact #transparency
The hundreds of #sanctuarycities across the country are also part of this reaction to unprecedented expansion of federal deportations programs trying to utilize local and state resources. #TheySaidNope #EndSCOMM #Basta287g #SafeCommunitiesAct #TrustAct #NoICEAccess
Just this week, the 9th Cir. Appellate Court added a ruling to the half dozen federal court rulings (across the country) upholding the #CAValues Act, making clear: NO, the fed government can’t force cities and states to do whatever the f- they want. #federalism101 #ConLaw #sb54
Now, the OC Supervisors and Sheriff might openly side with Trump and his family separation immigration agenda, but transparency is the law, as are #TruthAct, #TrustAct, and #CAValues requirements in state law. #OpenGovernment
Meanwhile, thanks to community pressure, today’s #TruthForum begins with community speakers — breaking down the requirements in state law to ensure #transparency and #dueprocess, and rejects federal mass deportations programs. #DefendSanctuary
The underlying issue here is cities and counties’ right to reject Trump and the fed government’s mass deportation programs. @OCGovCA Supervisors n Sheriff #DonBarnes may be outside of the #CAConsensus, but they can’t function outside of California law. #CAValues #TruthForum
OC #TruthForum making clear the connection btwn @OCGovCA Supervisor’s poor record on transparency and their efforts to join Trump’s nativist political stunts.

Definitely, an essential element of the #SCOMM legacy is DHS and ICE’s obfuscation of the true extent of collusion between local law-enforcement and federal immigration enforcement. #UncoverTheTruth #TruthForum #EndSCOMM #NDLONvsICE
Sidenote, we would all be better off if we understood the role that the Obama administration and #DHS played in expanding this massive federal dragnet. Both the takeover of #DHS and upcoming elections good reasons to #UncoverTheTruth about #SCOMM
And yes, a very happy birthday to @joinandrewdo
Separately, today, OC’s #Armenian residents commemorated one hundred years since the Armenian genocide, a powerful reminder about the importance of collective memory and truth. With @UCIASA.

We all have to do our part to ensure that extremist violence #NeverAgain happens.
Ironically, when refugees can most use a voice to defend their rights and challenge scapegoating, #MichelleSteele has consistently sided with Trump’s family separation policies. #DefendSanctuary #NotYourScapegoat #RefugeesWelcome #BastaHate
Last one.

As OC communities continue to expose OC entanglement with ICE and Trump, the Q is whether the OC GOP will continue on the same path? (Which frankly did not end well for their members of Congress) #SanctuaryCities #CAValues
