Striking back at so-called sanctuary cities, the Costa Mesa City Council declared itself a “Rule of Law” city, setting itself up as a lightning rod in the latest wave of debate over immigration reform, it was reported today.
The vote came last night at the urging of Mayor Allan Mansoor, who was condemned by the Orange County branch of the Anti-Defamation League in April when he called for city efforts to help enforce immigration laws.
In 2005, Mansoor proposed training Costa Mesa police to enforce federal immigration laws, and that touched off a debate that culminated in a First Amendment lawsuit. Costa Mesa prevailed in the case when a jury rejected the ACLU-backed lawsuit in December.
