Radio host and Fox News commentator Dan Bongino held nothing back when he learned that California Governor Jerry Brown had granted pardons to five illegal immigrants.
So, just to be clear, in California you get a pardon from the liberal Governor for actual crimes while the Sheriffs, who actually enforce our immigration laws, are under threat of potential arrest for doing so? We are living in an abyss of stupidity. https://t.co/wCL4483CEb

Bongino referenced the ongoing battle between several local sheriffs’ offices, Governor Brown, and his Attorney General Xavier Becerra, both Democrats. California became a sanctuary state on January 1, but officials in Los Alamitos and Orange County have reportedly been looking for a workaround. Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens said that her office would publish the release dates of inmates, calling it a public safety issue rather than an immigration issue.
AG Becerra held a news conference the following day, issuing a statement of his own to any departments that might be considering similar action. “State law is state law. It’s my job to enforce state law and I will do so. We want to make sure that every jurisdiction, including Orange County, understands what state law requires of the people and the subdivisions of the state of California.”
