  1. Interesting. Santa Ana PD accepted millions in federal funds when they couldn’t afford to hire cops. They certainly helped the Federal law enforcement back in the 80s and 90s. But now that they are flush with cash, suddenly they won’t help out.

    1. why don’t you shut your mouth and spent your time in something useful.
      instead of criticizing on the Good deeds of the police department.
      Will love to see if you were in those poor people’s shoes if you will make this kind of comments.

      1. Listen up everyone pay attention and read this very carefully when the new world order arrives the antichrist will control all people religion Catholics faith will be banned from existence by new world order 666 says in bible revelation 12 the one world government will control everything you all do and say period just wait ok . Can’t call bible a lie can you . A rfid chip will be mandatory to all people of earth . No more drugs no more prayer no more freedom no more money cashless system no more lifestyle

    2. Look Santa ana is filled with immigrants how would you feel if your loved one was being detained my question why is it just one race their focusing on you need keep In consideration immigrants are hardworking not only that they work for what they have now they make us better, you guys stole our land so therefore keep your rhetorical comments n your nasty ass mouth out

      1. The whole reason this is happening is because they all came here illegally! That’s against the law. We incarcerate everyone else that breaks the law here. So they should consider themselves lucky. They get to go home instead of jail. They never should have come here illegally in the first place.again its AGAINST THE LAW!

        1. It’s a form of civil disobedience. There are scenarios in which the law is morally questionable and thus incarceration doesn’t seem fit to some level of gov. It was once illegal for a person of color to go to a certain school or restaurant. Do you think that they should’ve been incarcerated at the time for doing so as the law deemed it that way? This scenario calls in to moral question the principle of immigration laws.

    3. Santa Ana was declared a sanctuary city by the city leaders, not by the PD. This has been their position for some time. Just had to contend with this recent threat by making this PSA.

    4. What does Santa Ana PD have to do with Ice department? Two different departments with different issues to deal with. You just love to see the world crumble and people to suffer that’s all.

    5. Yeah because I’ve is similar to Nazis and who wants to be involved in a witch Hunt for illegal immigrants when if we voted on ICE it probably wouldn’t exist

    6. Why should they. Their job is to protect their community not police the country… ICE is a hoax anyway. What a joke…

    7. Delilah this is not surprising considering the liberaism that permeates throughout that city which also promotes marijuana on the freeways for all to see. That’s interesting considering that cigarette advertising is mostly banned but marijuana a that is proven to cause physical holes in the brain are celebrated as “natural”.

  2. Good! The Santa Ana Police do an awesome job!
    They don’t need to be harassing innocent people.
    They have enough on their hands.

    1. Illegal is a thing. Those here in violation of the law should be removed. They had a chance to obey they law and they chose to violate it.
      SAPD should cooperate with the federal government when appropriate. The City Council Just panders for votes like the rest of the liberal politicians in this state. This city is going down the drain with the marijuana billboards, criminal released early and homeless population everywhere. Is Santa Ana “Little L.A.” or has Los Angeles become as bad as Santa Ana?! It’s time to clean house in City Council ASAP and let the PD clean-up the streets without politicians getting in the way! Get the drugs out of this city and crack down on the Mexican Street gangs and make this city safe for families and businesses to thrive which will increase tax revenue for the city instead of the city approving federally illegal drug sales throughout the city. How can anyone be proud to say they live in this city?

  3. Yeah it’s almost as if the Santa Ana legislature has half a brain and they realize that if the surrounding community feels like they are being targeted, that they will be less willing to be to help in major investigations that impact the public; we could always target the local help though cuz ‘Merica! NAMBLA!

  4. Seems CA has an over abundant of cockyness now that they have increased taxes on gas and housing…but, they’ve hit the news again “CA now first THIRD WORLD STATE” thanks to inaction to avoid homelessness. How proud are you politicians of what you’ve accomplished!!

  5. Why should any one be surprised , look at the make up of the rank an file as well as the city councils of most CALIFORNIA’S municipality’s. but be aware all this look the other way PC is going too come back and bite them !!!

  6. When city law enforcement quibbles and gives more rights to illegals than their own federal government, that’s treason in my opinion. You want a stronger America, less taxes, more opportunities? Then give it to your citizens, not illegals who subvert the system.

    1. My fellow Undocumented brothers and sisters contribute to this country in more ways than any ultra nationalist like yourself could ever dream of… culture, economy, consumers, education, Art, military, justice and a truly Progressive United States that provides liberty, opportunity and JUSTICE for all, are the true ideals of an enlightened U.S. American…what do YOU bring to this country?????? Hate, separating families, perpetuating the suffering of poor people, xenophobia, fascism, neo Nazi values…🤔 DEPORT RACISM!!! Paz y Amor a todos, even you…

  7. They and their children should feel the pain and suffering of murder, rape, and disease brought on by these filthy illegals

    1. Dehumanization of other people…Step 1 in Nazi Germany…is that what you would like to see…South American children in gas chambers??? That is the same uneducated and misguided rhetoric of Hitlers followers…you are an embarrassment of a human being…read a book you monster caveman~

  8. Santa Ana has turned into a $%#@hole!!! I remember driving through there 20 years ago to get to work in Garbage Grove. It stink to high hell back then. Time for a clean out bigtime!!!

  9. California and the USA need to account for every illegal alien. Either give them legal status or deport. The financial burden on citizens and legal immigrants is unfair. The burden on public services and healthcare services is overwhelming. How can the liberal government pass legislation to fund illegal immigrants’ health insurance, but turn their backs on homeless people in this state? Our Democrat politicians are suffering from mass psychosis.

  10. Thats amazing! Immigrants make up this country anyways so no problem. Immigrant make up a majority of the vegetation and agricultural jobs. Besides a large majority of immigrants mean no harm theres only a small percentage of immigrants who cause harm. Im proud Santa Ana isn’t taking away hispanic families away from each other.

    1. 45000 illegals have crossed the border recently and they come from 52 countries. It’s not just Mexicans and it is a problem. You need to get your information from somewhere besides OC Weekly, MSNBC or CNN.

  11. I knw a lot of people that got there paper work when they came here they did it right …. and I knw a lot of people that do not want the paper work ! They dnt want to pay taxes …. so to me ? If you are good with papers then hey by all means stay …. if you didn’t get your paper work then you must go …… it’s the same way in all the other countries .. it’s the law ……
