    Hutchens seems to say one thing and do another. In The March 11th Orange County Register I found this article “Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens asks Trump administration to help her hold undocumented immigrants.” The article is available here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/ice-746242-hutchens-county.html
    This after another OC Register article of March 8th “Immigrant inmates given rotten meat, 24-hour solitary at Orange County jail, watchdog finds.” The article is here: http://www.ocregister.com/articles/sheriff-746076-jail-detainees.html
    Attempting to buck California law and the 4th amendment while offering to provide subhuman detention services is not the kind of law enforcement I want to support.

    Good. Stay out of Crybaby Trump and his diversion campaign.

    Disgraced Snitch Scandal Sandra is already kicking off her next election campaign….Let’s hope that at least 51% of the voters hold her accountable for her many lies and crimes this time around. 🙂

      I don’t think she’ll run again. It would be a true act of hubris on her part to do so. Enough is enough.

      I would love for Sheriff Joe Arpaio to come to OC.

      The thought of inmates dressed in pink warms my heart.

        I wouldn’t be at all surprised. These power hungry political animals don’t just go away; they just slither around in the darkness awaiting their next prey.

        Plus, She is already snuggling up to Spitzer in order to keep the rein of political criminal corruption running like an energizer bunny on crack.

          That’s all we need. Luigi and Pupetta running the OC justice system.

    “In 2016, 57,123 people were booked into our county jail from various law enforcement agencies. Deputies identified 391 inmates who would qualify under the TRUST Act for an ICE detainer.

    These individuals represent less than 1% of total jail bookings. Their charges ranged from homicide, rape and possession of weapons, to driving while under the influence.”

    The Trust Act is a farce and any cop worth his or her salt would concur.

    Criminals who commit bad crimes (misdemeanors and non-violent felonies) over and above immigration crimes are ignored by the Trust Act and released back into our community after they’ve finished their jail sentence.

    The OC Register reported in 2015 that illegal aliens account for about 10% of OC’s population. The actual number was 313,000.

    So if 391 illegals qualified under the Trust Act for transfer to ICE that would account for about 1/100th of the total OC illegal population. ha.

    Chances are good that you probably booked between 5,000 or 10,000 of illegals into your jail and released all but 391 back out onto the streets of OC so those illegal foreigners could commit even more crimes against OC citizens and legal residents.

    Boy, that sure makes me feel safe.

    This is what the ACLU website says with regard to the limitations of holding an illegal alien jailed in California, per the Trust Act:

    “You CANNOT be held for immigration

    *If you are arrested for or convicted of a minor offense (traffic offenses, trespassing, resisting arrest, or others).

    *A domestic violence arrest is not enough for you to be held for immigration.

    *For driving under the influence (DUI), you cannot be held for immigration on a misdemeanor (minor) arrest or conviction.”

    What a farce. So an illegal alien can beat his wife or significant other and under the Trust Act you have to release him back onto the OC streets after he’s taken into custody and jailed. ha.

    So much for women’s rights, eh Sheriff?

    Btw, does your Agency still sponsor those programs (w/ taxpayer dollars) in non-English speaking neighborhoods to acclimate “immigrants” into our community?

    Part of the problem or part of the solution??? 🙂

    Hey Sandra-

    You sure cooperate with the Feds by housing illegals in your jail for the “Beds for Feds” program. But naturally you make a ton of money off that program which allows you to keep high staff employment in your jails. So you cooperate with the Feds as long as it benefits you. Otherwise, you refuse cooperation, even if the illegals are, by definition, criminals who broke into the country and steal jobs from US citizens and legal immigrants. Btw, an unauthorized foreigner who holds a job in California is in violation of State labor laws. But I guess you turn a blind eye to that too. How about identity theft? That’s a violation of the State penal code. That’s not your job either?

    If one of your deputies stops a car and sees counterfeit currency printing plates on the back seat – does he ignore it?

    If a Federal bank is robbed do your deputies refuse to respond to a holdup in progress?

    If someone is kidnapped across state lines do you refuse to assist in the investigation?

    If there is a warrant out for the arrest of a Federal tax evader – do your deputies refuse to detain or arrest him for transfer to Federal authorities?

    Refusal to assist the Feds in enforcing illegal immigration is IMO a dereliction of duty. Illegal foreigners are criminals and police officers (regardless of local, state or Federal) are sworn to protect the public from criminals. Turning a blind eye is not protection.

    How would you like it if someone committed a crime in Orange County in violation of State law and was located in an adjacent state by the Feds – who refused to cooperate with your police agency by taking him into custody and holding him until your detectives picked him up?

    Put the shoe on the other foot. How does it feel?
