(National Sentinel)Â Lawless: San Diego County SupervisorÂ Dianne Jacob said Sunday she thinks the situation is getting out of hand in California, calling it a “rogue state” for defying the federal government largely over immigration issues.
â€œCalifornia has become a rogue state,â€ she said on the Todd Starnes Radio show, asÂ reported by Fox News. â€œIllegal immigration is wrong. There is a legal way to come into this country and that should be upheld.â€
The county board of supervisors is planning to vote on April 17 on whether to join the Trump administration’s lawsuit against the state.
â€œThis is a public safety issue. We have people crossing our border illegally and they are committing crimes,â€ Jacob said.
â€œThe California law puts a wedge between the ability of local law enforcement and federal officials to cooperate with each other.â€
Jacob represents a district that runs adjacent to the state’s border with Mexico. She noted during her interview that the area has become very dangerous.
â€œWe have people coming across the border that want to do us harm,â€ she said. â€œThey have no hesitation to use whatever force is necessary to get what they want.â€
Jacob then called on Gov. Jerry Brown to comply with the administrationâ€™s request to send National Guard troops to the border â€“ calling it a â€œnational defense issue.â€
â€œThe border needs to be secured to stop the illegal flow of drugs and humans across the border,â€ she noted. â€œCalifornia needs to comply with federal law.â€
