CA city opts out of state's sanctuary status

Since California became the center of the resistance to President Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration, so-called sanctuary policies have taken root across the state. "This council is looking out for the constituents in our city", he said.

Separately, Register also reported that Kusumoto was particularly concerned that SB 54 would require him to disobey the Constitution: "California legislators are bulling local elected officials into violating our oath of office", he said.

Officials in Los Alamitos want to be exempt from the state law created to protect some undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Council member Mark A. Chirco, the sole no vote to the ordinance, said that its approval would lead to further legal disputes and that the city is not equipped to fight a long lawsuit.

"There are a lot of mayors in California that don't want to be part of it, but it's a really tough situation because in our state, a lot of this legislation that comes out of Sacramento just seems disconnected", Troy Edgar said Monday.

"A sanctuary state is protecting illegal criminals", Aldeguer said.

"About 160 people showed up to Monday's regular City Council meeting, a monthly event that rarely draws enough people to fill the 40-seat chamber".

The initiative is in addition to sanctuary city laws passed by numerous communities and other state laws that protect those without legal residency, including one that makes it crime for business owners to voluntarily help federal agents find and detain unauthorized workers and another that creates a state inspection program for federal immigration detention centers.

N. Korean Flag Attracts Attention in PyeongChang
North Korea's 24-strong delegation arrived in South Korea yesterday through a land border north of the South Korean capital Seoul. The athletics lineup includes alpine skiing, biathlon, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, snowboarding and wheelchair curling.

If the measure passes, it isn't entirely clear how it will affect daily life in the city known for its strong public schools and a USA military base.

She moved from San Francisco to Los Alamitos in 2001 before relocating to Rossmoor two years later and was bracing herself for a more conservative community.

"I will give it my best shot", he said in an email to Newsweek Monday. "We are heartened that body politics is taking an action that supports federal laws", Robin Hvidston, executive director of We The People Rising, a lobbying organization for stricter immigration enforcement, told the newspaper.

"I don't think there's a large undocumented presence which begs the question: why is the council trying to make a big deal out of something that isn't a big deal in the community", Pullen said.

Some immigration enforcement supporters hope that Los Alamitos is the beginning of a trend. "I don't think that would be prudent", Chirco told the LA Times.

The California city of Los Alamitos plans to consider an ordinance that would exempt it from a state sanctuary law.

"Our immigrants should not have to live in fear", she said.
