The list of cities considering sticking it to the state and cooperating with the feds on immigration enforcement matters is getting longer by the day. Less than two weeks after the small Orange County city of Los Alamitos voted to exempt itself from SB 54, a parade of local leaders from jurisdictions across California said they would sponsor similar resolutions — or at least consider doing so.
Costa Mesa Mayor Pro Tem Allan Mansoor would like to see his city become the next to opt out of California’s sanctuary state legislation.
"I'm open to bringing another resolution forward, but it would be just that — a resolution," he said, referencing a 2010 item he brought forth that ultimately declared Costa Mesa a “rule of law city.”
"Another option is clearly asking ICE to come over and for us to start cooperating with them, which, frankly, we should be doing," Mansoor added.
We've already mentioned how Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Buena Park and Fullerton are exploring the possibility of joining in this movement, along with counties and cities in Central and Northern California.
And now the High Desert city of Hesperia also began discussions on SB 54 last week.
During a closed session Tuesday, the Hesperia City Council voted 3-1 on the legislation-based item, that includes the city “joining” an amicus brief that is being filed in the case that involves the Department of Justice suing the state of California over recent immigration laws
