Los Angeles Officially Declares ‘Sanctuary City’ Status for Criminal Illegal Aliens:
The city of Los Angeles, California, has officially declared itself a “sanctuary city” to shield criminal illegal aliens from arrest and deportation by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency — a decision that will enshrine the policy into its municipal code.
This week, the Los Angeles City Council made the official move to codify the region’s sanctuary policy, whereas prior directives were merely symbolic and thus subject to changes.
The sanctuary city designation, which mirrors California’s sanctuary state law, dictates that no city resources are used for federal immigration enforcement — barring local agencies from cooperating with ICE agents to turn criminal illegal aliens over for deportation.
The policy also requests Los Angeles officials to create routes for agencies to avoid sharing data with ICE agents --->READ MORE HERE

Los Angeles Seeks to Become ‘Sanctuary City’ for Illegal Immigrants:
Los Angeles is considering an ordinance to officially enshrine its previously only symbolic moniker as a “sanctuary city” into its municipal code, after a proposal was introduced by Los Angeles City Council members Eunisses Hernandez, Nithya Raman, and Hugo Soto-Martinez on March 7.
“Los Angeles is a city of immigrants,” Hernandez said in a statement. “As the daughter of two Mexican immigrants myself, I know how important and overdue these protections are to our community members.”
The proposal, if passed, would direct the city to forbid any investigations or enforcement actions related to someone’s immigration status and disallow any attempt to ask for or compile such information.
According to the proposal, it will formalize the city’s symbolic declaration from 2019.
It would also limit immigration officials’ access to nonpublic areas—including jails—unless a valid search or arrest warrant is produced.
Additionally, the proposal would block the provision of city database access or any personal information or data about individuals to federal immigration agents.
“Immigrants make up the very fabric of this city,” Raman said in a statement to City News Service. “Prohibiting the use of city resources for federal immigration enforcement shouldn’t depend only on executive actions that could be overturned by a future mayor or police chief. These are fundamental protections that should be enshrined in our laws going forward.” --->READ MORE HERE
