California Sheriff Hit With Lawsuit For Reporting Criminal Illegal Immigrants To ICE

The Sheriff of Sacramento County obeys Federal law in re: ICE and illegal aliens.  He does not obey the illegal laws of California which demand law enforcement protect criminals from foreign countries in spite of Federal laws.

““Sheriff Scott R. Jones has long championed cooperation with ICE and fiercely opposed SB 54 and similar laws,” the suit alleges. “Unable to stop SB 54’s passage, the sheriff and his office have revised its operation through a policy and practice of notifying ICE of when a person will be released from its custody and transferring that person to ICE, including in situations where that person lacks a qualifying criminal conviction or charge.”

“We have documentation from the sheriff’s department itself, showing exactly how these illegal transfers between the sheriff’s office and ICE have occurred,” said Sean Riordan, a senior staff attorney with ACLU Northern California.

You read that right—the ACLU wants to keep criminals on the streets of California—yet will not pay for the financial losses and physical damage done by the criminals they protect.

California Sheriff Hit With Lawsuit For Reporting Criminal Illegal Immigrants To ICE

By Red Voice Media, Lifeezette,  11/26/21 

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a legal complaint against Sacramento County Sheriff Scott Jones claiming that his office has teamed up with federal immigration agents to violate a California law that is designed to protect illegal immigrants.

The complaint accuses Jones of violating the California Values Act, or Senate Bill 54, which bans state employees from assisting federal immigration enforcement from rounding up illegal aliens. The bill, which was signed into law in October of 2018, also deems schools, hospitals, and courthouses as safe spaces, according to KCRA.

In their complaint, the ACLU alleges that Jones boasted of cooperating with U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement.

“Sheriff Scott R. Jones has long championed cooperation with ICE and fiercely opposed SB 54 and similar laws,” the suit alleges. “Unable to stop SB 54’s passage, the sheriff and his office have revised its operation through a policy and practice of notifying ICE of when a person will be released from its custody and transferring that person to ICE, including in situations where that person lacks a qualifying criminal conviction or charge.”

“We have documentation from the sheriff’s department itself, showing exactly how these illegal transfers between the sheriff’s office and ICE have occurred,” said Sean Riordan, a senior staff attorney with ACLU Northern California.

The ACLU went on to claim that Jones has been working with federal officials to arrest illegal aliens after ICE was notified of the date and time of and time of the undocumented Sacramento residents’ releases. The lawsuit additionally accuses Jones and his office of violating the Truth Act, which is the due process of protecting illegal aliens being targeted by ICE.
