LA Mayor Says They Will ‘Not Participate In Immigration Enforcement’

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and Police Chief Michel Moore want their residents to know they will not enforce federal immigration laws or cooperate with federal agencies that do.

Los Angeles immigrants are safe, the duo said in a video that the mayor uploaded to social media.

But what about the city’s citizens? Those legally in the country/state/city?

“Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side,” the mayor said in a tweet. “Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.”

The duo claimed they are willing to set aside enforcing federal immigration laws to give immigrants a sanctuary of sorts to live—at the expense of their own residents.

Here’s how some people responded to the absurdity via Twitchy:
