Just a few things to say. First, it is so wonderful that our county is in such wonderful shape that our representatives have nothing to do but comment upon the actions of a different state. Secondly, under the Brown Act, as I understand it, a quorum of representatives can not meet in a secret, closed meeting. That violates the intent of open meetings. If this is simply political grandstanding then it should be LEGALLY put on the agenda and dealt with properly. If this is being done as individuals, then it should not be delivered under the cover of the Board of Supervisors.
Stop playing games and actually work on the business of this county.

Geez. How about the Board of Stupidvisors pay attention to Contra Costa County? Quite frankly, I'm ready to send an open letter to all the papers in Arizona telling them to send their illegals to California, regardless of what their reason for coming here is. The ridiculous mindset of our elected officials deserves no less.
The law mirrors Federal law, in fact, it includes more protection than the federal law. In addition, Arizona has an agreement with the feds to arrest and detain illegals on their behalf. AND, it has been federal law for 70 years that noncitizens carry documentation with them. The emotional knee jerk reaction is mind boggling.
Don't even get me started on the comments from Mexican officials...

Thus, you should revisit the reasons CCC Districts 1, 4, and 5, as Democrats, acted in appropriate party campaign fashion to join other State Democrats in opposing the likely results of the Arizona Law and its potential for violation of the civil rights of individuals as citizens, residents and guests of our country as provided by our Constitution and Federal Laws.
