Republican Stronghold Rejects Anti-Sanctuary Measure

Could California’s anti-sanctuary movement be losing steam?

That’s a question worth asking one day after Placer County rejected a bid to condemn California’s sanctuary state law

Placer is one of California’s most solidly Republican counties. In the 2016, voters broke 51.14% for Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton received just 39.52% of the vote. Needless to say, the Board of Supervisors' rejection came as a bit of a shock.

Supervisor Kirk Uhler introduced the measure. It’s not clear whether he will pursue it again at a later date.
