"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 illegal immigrants to fully benefit from city services. The 15 cities in Los Angeles County listed below are identified as having adopted variations of these policies.

Bell Gardens
City of Industry
City of Commerce
Downey
Lakewood
Los Angeles
Long Beach
Lynwood
Maywood
Montebello
Norwalk
Paramount
Pico Rivera
South Gate
Vernon
