Washington Times reports the Border Patrol says it’s been forced to release a drunken driver back onto the streets, and nearly missed out on nabbing a fake UPS delivery van carrying 77 illegal immigrants — all because California’s new sanctuary city laws have soured cooperation between police and federal authorities.

In the drunken driving case, a local police department said it couldn’t respond to agents who’d pulled over the drunken driver, since it began as an immigration stop.
