Los Alamitos rejects being “Sanctuary City”

Last March, in the first round of voting, the Municipal Council of Los Alamitos approved the initiative to exempt the city from the application of Law SB 54 which declares California a sanctuary state for immigrants.

On the night of Monday, April 16, the Council ratified this order with 4 votes in favor and one against, despite the strong protests made by hundreds of opponents to the measure presented by Councilman Warren Kusumoto.

Law SB 54 restricts the cooperation of local authorities with the Immigration Customs Service in the deportation of residents.

The lawyers of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), before announcing the vote, made the commitment to sue Los Alamitos if they ratified the approval according to information issued by Telemundo 52.

In addition, the previous week, ACLU sent a letter to the city stating the mistake made by public officials regarding the limits they had as an “independent city” as far as the application of the state law is concerned.

In the letter, ACLU made it clear that there has not been a higher court ruling on the California Securities Law, so El Alamito cannot argue that it is not possible to comply with state law and needs to obey the Constitution of the United States.

Ten other cities in Southern California and Orange County (Westminster, Newport Beach, Orange, Huntington Beach, Old Mission, Aliso Viejo, Fountain Valley, San Juan Capistrano, and Yorba Linda) have joined the insurrection that started in Los Alamitos, after the lawsuit filed by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which faces the statutes of the California Securities Law.
