The #CounterResistance gained an important, new member today when the San Diego County Board of Supervisors officially voted to support the US Department of Justice in its lawsuit against California SB54's "Sanctuary State" rules.

The board voted 3-1 in favor of filing an amicus brief in support of Attorney General Jeff Sessions' suit against policies aimed at protecting undocumented immigrants, making San Diego County the most populous county in the state to side with the federal government in the case. "He can't attempt to undermine federal immigration laws by implementing state laws that are having devastating impacts on the San Diego community that shares a border with Mexico".

The decision by San Diego County's all-Republican Board of Supervisors comes amid a growing conservative backlash in California against the Democratic governor's stance on immigration enforcement.

"This is really quite remarkable", she said.

Supervisor Greg Cox was the only one opposed to supporting the lawsuit. She had been the most vocal supporter of the lawsuit.

SB 54, the law that received the most publicity when it passed, allows officers to turn unauthorized immigrants over to federal immigration enforcement agencies only if they have committed crimes listed in the legislation.

The Board of Supervisors voted Wednesday to direct staff to investigate ways to promote the construction of homes for low- and middle-income families in unincorporated San Diego County.

Of the sanctuary laws, the city council said it "believes this legislation is a threat to both local control of businesses in the state and the individual liberty and public safety because it prevents law enforcement from performing their duties as necessitated by local circumstances".

The message the County is sending by taking this action is that they not only support using public safety as a deporting force, but that they have done it prior to SB 54.

Assembly Bill 103 prohibits local governments across California from adding new contracts with the federal government for civil immigration detention or expanding old ones.

The twelve people who supported the lawsuit told supervisors that the laws in question were an overreach of state power and anxious that they would inhibit the federal government from deporting people with criminal convictions.

Many accused Gaspar of bringing the issue to a county vote to gain media attention for her campaign to take the Congressional seat of Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Vista. "Brown's sanctuary state", Gaspar said. Supervisor Greg Cox, whose district covers the South Bay, voted against it. Supervisor Ron Roberts, who represents central San Diego, was traveling overseas and did not attend the meeting.

"This is highly political, and I'm trying to fight the fires of prejudice and fear, but to enforce the law", Brown said during an appearance at the National Press Club in Washington, DC.

He previously said he would have urged his colleagues "to stay out of this issue". "But we do say we're not going to do the work of the federal government".
