Alex Villanueva, a progressive Latino who vowed to “kick ICE out” of the nation’s largest jail system if elected, was sworn in as Los Angeles County’s new sheriff on Monday.

He stunned the local political establishment last month after winning 53% of the vote to defeat then-Sheriff Jim McDonnell, who became the first incumbent voted out of that office in more than a century. Villanueva had recently retired from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department with the rank of lieutenant after more than three decades of service.

A staunch supporter of California’s sanctuary state law, Villanueva appealed to African-Americans, Hispanics, labor unions, and registered Democrats in a deep-blue county. Together, they helped brand his nonpartisan opponent as a pro-Trump Republican who willfully collaborated with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“We will not allow any divisive policies from outside Los Angeles or California to dictate the way we do our job here,” Villanueva told the crowd assembled at East L.A. College, where he took the oath of office. “Our hard-working immigrant families shouldn’t have to wonder if we are here to protect them or to deport them.”

Villanueva made several statements during the campaign that were perceived to be hardline stances against federal immigration authorities, but critics have accused him of sending mixed signals about cooperating with ICE.

The U.S. Air Force veteran promised “to create a very bright line between [the] department’s actions and ICE” and “actually physically kick ICE out of the county jails.”
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

  • This is the way.
Once again an elected official in the state of California proves that they care more for the lawbreakers than the law abiding citizen.

I'm cool with this as long as the criminals are contained to roam around California. Elections have consequences.
Man’s greatness is so obvious that it can even be deduced from his wretchedness, for what is nature in animals we call wretchedness in man, thus recognizing that, if his nature is today like that of the animals, he must have fallen from some better state which was once his own.
