Illegal aliens are set to receive millions of dollars in legal representation under a new program approved by the San Diego County Board of Supervisors, according to reports.
Officials in the Southern California county gave the green light to a ‘pilot program’ that will force taxpayers to pay for attorneys for illegals facing deportation.
“The 3-2 vote orders work to begin on a $5 million, one-year pilot program administered through the county’s public defender’s office. It would provide lawyers for free to those detained at Otay Mesa Detention Center, the local federal immigration detention facility,” the Associated Press reports.
“County staff have 90 days to report back on a plan to fund and operate the program permanently in partnership with immigrant defense and non-profit groups.”
County Supervisor Jim Desmond voted against the measure, asserting there isn’t enough local money to solve federal issues.
“This is a federal matter, and we should be communicating with them for more support,” Desmond said.
“I won’t be supporting the item.”

Border Patrol recently announced more resources were being deployed to intercept smuggling operations along the coast in the region.
“We’ve seen a dramatic increase in the number of maritime smuggling attempts recently,” said Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Heitke. “All of these illegal crossings at sea are inherently dangerous, and we have seen too many turn from risky to tragic as smugglers sacrifice the safety of those on board for the sake of profits.”
