Remember the Alamitos

I delayed this post in order to document the fallout.

Los Alamitos might try to opt out of California’s new sanctuary law.

The City Council in Orange County’s second-smallest city is scheduled to vote Monday, March 19 on an ordinance that calls for exempting itself from the California Values Act, SB54, a new law that limits cooperation between law enforcement and immigration authorities.

The state law, which took effect Jan. 1, “may be in direct conflict with federal laws and the Constitution of the United States,” reads the proposed local law.

Stating that council members have taken an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution, the ordinance says the council “finds that it is impossible to honor our oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States” and at the same time be in compliance with the new state law.

Well, well. It’s a tiny place but finally, a bit of pushback against an open declaration of treason against the Federal Government of the United States.


The County of Orange and several cities in Southern California soon might join Los Alamitos in its bid to opt out of a controversial state law that limits cooperation with federal immigration officials.

Officials with the county as well as leaders in Aliso Viejo and Buena Park said Tuesday they plan to push for various versions of the anti-sanctuary ordinance approved in Los Alamitos late Monday by a 4-1 vote of that city council.

“There’s a pretty good amount of cities interested and they want to know about the process,” said Los Alamitos Mayor Troy Edgar, who spent Tuesday fielding calls and e-mails from officials in other cities and others interested in the push. …

Orange County Supervisor Michelle Steel soon plans to introduce an opt-out ordinance to the county Board of Supervisors, her spokeswoman said in an e-mail. …

In Aliso Viejo, Mayor Dave Harrington said his council plans to discuss similar action at its April 4 meeting. …

Buena Park Councilwoman Beth Swift said she plans to request at the next council meeting for the issue to be placed on a future agenda for discussion.

Robin Hvidston, executive director of the Claremont-based We the People Rising, said she has heard from residents in Upland and Fullerton who want to approach their councils to suggest the same.

Another city that had been discussing something similar, even before Los Alamitos’ vote, is Huntington Beach, according to Assemblyman Travis Allen, a Republican who represents both Huntington Beach and Los Alamitos.

So, what does it take to push back against illegal immigration and the traitors who prosper from it?

More than half of Los Alamitos’ 11,700 residents are white and about 2,700 are Latino, according to census data. The median household income is close to $81,000.

My additional research:

Buena Park, 25% white, median household income $70k, 45% English-speaking, 37% foreign-born

Aliso Viejo, 61% white, $103k, 72% English, 21% foreigner

Huntington Beach, 64% white, $85k, 78% English, 17% foreigner

Fullerton, 34% white, $67k, 53% English, 32% foreigner

Claremont: 53% white, $94k, 71% English, 19% foreigner

The obviously consistent statistic is the median household income is well above the national average of $55k. This should be partly attributed to California having a higher cost of living but even so, it’s significant. It’s also notable that English-speakers are 20 points higher than white demographics, indicating Latinos who successfully assimilate into the American way of life (enough to at least communicate).

Some other cities for comparison:

Pico Rivera, recently covered here and next to Kevin De Leon’s area: 6% white, 57k, 29% English-speaking, 32% foreign-born

Paso Robles, wine country: 56% white, $62k, 70% English, 18% foreigner

Bakersfield, central valley: 35% white, $59k, 59% English, 19% foreigner

Oakland: 27% white, $58k, 60% English, 27% foreigner

Redding in the Land of Jefferson: 79% white, $45k, 90% English, 6% foreigner

  1. It is an interesting mini rebellion inside the larger California rebellion, mostly because it’s easy to forget about all the solid dudes living in the liberal bastion


  2. Update, now the entire Orange County is in opposition to sanctuary statehood in California.

    The Orange County Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday in a closed-door session to join the federal government in a lawsuit against California over the state law that went into effect in January. …

    “By making this a sanctuary city, a sanctuary state, we’re doing nothing more than attracting millions of more people to come to this country and consume the very wealth that’s being talked about today that’s necessary for quality of life for the poor group of Americans,” [U.S. Representative Dana Rohrabacher] said.

    Kevin de Leon, traitor to the United States and ally of the openly racist organization La Raza, tweeted a reply: “While California as a whole may be progressive, repeated attacks on hardworking immigrants to portray them as criminals are a stain on California’s history. The people of Orange County deserve better.”

    While I’m glad Sessions is pursuing the matter, he doesn’t have time to do this by the book. The Seditionists of Sacramento need Gitmo trips before the immigration floodgates stay open too long. We can let justice grind slow & fine once these criminals have been removed from power and are held without legal representation or outside contact in an undisclosed location.

    Hey, if the Second Amendment is obsolete then so are the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth. I don’t believe that but they do… let them be the first to enjoy the Brave New Unconstitutional World they wish for.
