Among them is a statute that limits cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities, which U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says is unconstitutional and compromises public safety.Escondido City Councilmember Olga Diaz — who represents District 3 — was the dissenting vote.Escondido is now the first local government in San Diego County to sound off on the case. Orange County has led the way in opposition against the sanctuary policies, though tactics have varied between governments.The Mission Viejo City Council voted to file an amicus brief last month, and the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to join the administration’s lawsuit.The Huntington Beach Council on Monday voted to become a part of the courtroom fight against the laws and the council in Los Alamitos recently voted to “exempt” itself from the policies.The matter was put on the council agenda by Mayor Sam Abed and Councilman John Masson.The San Diego Board of Supervisors on April 17 plan to discuss the case. Supervisor Dianne Jacob said she expects the board to vote at least 3-2 to join the lawsuit.
