Black voters in Santa Clarita, California took their MAGA energy to the city council to voice their disdain for California effectively becoming a sanctuary state.
According to sanctuary policies, police cannot inquire about an individual’s legal status even after arresting them for having committed a crime.
“Americans are dreamers too. We’re paying for welfare, for section 8, you costing us our jobs. We’re paying for you,” a woman in a MAGA hat says in the video. “Respect Americans. This is America! This is our home and this is our country.”
The people were speaking against Senate Bill 54, which “blocks state and local law enforcement agencies from using their resources — whether that be money, properties, equipment or personnel — to help with federal immigration enforcement,” according to Fox News. It also blocks state and local police from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
The varying individuals speaking out against SB 54 shared a plethora of differing viewpoints on the bill. One man spoke about the importance of the rule of law; another woman passionately spoke about how sanctuary city policies harm black communities.
“The black community is most adversely affected by illegal alien activity,” she exclaimed. “When you come here illegally, they don’t get trucked into Brentwood, they don’t trucked into Beverly Hills. They get trucked into Watts, they get trucked into the streets of Crenshaw.”
