The southern California city of Los Alamitos -the first municipality to opt-out of the state’s ‘Sanctuary’ laws- voted again Monday to rebuke the “unconstitutional” guidelines; finalizing the town’s new policies after an intense five-hour debate.
The city council voted 4-1 to this week to officially reject the Golden State’s controversial law that prohibits local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration agents.
“It is the second time the council voted in favor of the ordinance as the city’s laws required the council to have a second reading of the measure before officially approving it,” writes Fox News.

The American Civil Liberties Union slammed the vote late Monday evening, calling the move a “blatant violation” of the town’s “obligation” to follow the state’s mandate on illegal immigration.
#LosAlamitos city council votes to "opt out" of the CA Values Act, a blatant violation of the city's obligation to follow a state law that puts our local resources to use for the safety of our communities rather than toward federal immigration agencies.
