Last week, Orange County officials announced that they will house immigration detainees in two jails in the county. This new deal will help bring jobs to public safety officials and bring in millions of dollars in revenue.
The jails will hold up to 800 detainees, one of the jails is in Orange and one near Irvine. The Sheriffs Department has been negotiating this deal with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for months to decide where and how the jails will be run.
Both jails will need to undergo some renovations in order to have more office space and courtrooms. Officials say that an influx of detainees may be seen in August, but it should be steady after that.

Recent polls show that residents are split over the new anti-immigration law. The split also shows which candidate the person is backing in the upcoming gubernatorial race.
The attitudes are near 50-50, with 49 percent of voters in agreement with the law and 45 percent that disapprove. Different areas of the state are also in different favor of the law.
San Francisco is supporting immigration and does not support the anti-immigrations law and the more conservative area of Orange County is in agreement with Arizona’s law. California is one of the only states that is split like this.

The immigration rules for Temecula City, Calif. may be changing and a debate has begun for people who agree with the new law and those who do not.
The new law will require local business to confirm a new hire’s immigration status and if they do not they could risk losing their license to operate their business in the city. Temecula is following other neighboring towns that have already implemented the E-Verify program.
The program will use the Social Security Administration and Homeland Security to find out whether a person is a legal citizen or not. The owners of the business can find these answers on the internet and it is free of charge to do so. Therefore, if a business hires an undocumented worker, there license could be lost.
If you are looking to work legally and have questions on how to do so, contact the Orange County work visa lawyers of Garg & Associates by calling 949-540-6704.

Orange County Republicans were not in support of Obama’s speech regarding immigration while immigration advocates were in support of it completely.
Republicans who oppose benefits for illegal immigrants said that they feel the speech is the same thing that Democrats have been saying for years. In the speech, Obama called for a reform in the immigration system and mentioned again that he does not agree with Arizona’s immigration law.
Democratic congress members felt as if this speech can help begin the process of a nationwide change in the system. Obama asked that Democrats work with Republicans on the issue in order to better enforce the system.
