"Sanctuary" Cities in Los Angeles County

Despite federal law (the Illegal Immigration Reform and Immigrant Responsibility Act of 1996) requiring local government to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security, some cities across the United States have adopted what are commonly known as "sanctuary policies." These generally direct city employees not to notify the federal government of the presence of illegal immigrants living in their communities. These policies do not make a distinction between legal and illegal residents, often allowing persons with no legal status in the United States to fully benefit from city services. The County of Los Angeles and the City of Los Angeles both have formally adopted "sanctuary" policies. There are other cities (and some school districts) within Los Angeles County that have also allegedly adopted and/or practice variations of these policies. Contact your local city hall for more information.
