The leftist inmates running the California asylum have evidently misjudged the support for granting immunity to an imported criminal class. One might even say supporters of the rule-of-law have come out of the shadows.

The Los Angeles Times reports the city council in Los Alamitos, California — a suburb of Los Angeles — approved an ordinance that in effect nullifies Senate Bill 54. That abysmal piece of "legislation" made California a "sanctuary state" and forbid local police and sheriff’s deputies from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

It’s a foolish, unconstitutional law that strikes at the foundation of what it means to be a nation and grants foreigners a special status under the law that’s denied citizens. Passage defies common sense and in the long run will make California a haven for law breakers, but consider the source.

And an overwhelming 4 to 1 majority passed the ordinance, striking a blow for law abiding citizens and rational thinkers. That marks the first in-state setback for invader enablers.

According to the Times the council meeting that passed the new ordinance was well-attended by citizens astonished that politicians in California would put a premium on enforcing immigration law, “Some in the chamber shouted ‘Patriots!’ and ‘This is a win for America!’ while others waved pro-President Donald Trump flags.”

It took a recent legal immigrant to put this issue into perspective for leftists who reflexively encourage the lawbreakers while attacking the law abiding. Moti Cohen, who lives in Garden Grove and married a woman who grew up in Los Alamitos, explained that he followed the immigration law and that encouraging those who choose not to damages the U.S. in the long run.

“The law is the law and has to be enforced all over the country. The country is a law-and-order country and you have to come here legally,” he explained.

Now that elected officials in Los Alamitos have courageously said "no" to collective immigration insanity, supporters of the rule-of-law are hoping it gives courage to other cities to follow their lead.

Robin Hvidston, the executive director of We The People Rising — an organization of sane people who favor stricter immigration enforcement, was encourage by the vote: “Perhaps [Los Alamitos] could be the leader. We are heartened that [the city council] is taking an action that supports federal laws.”

I say, “me too” in an entirely non-satirical manner.
