California rang in the New Year as a newfangled “sanctuary state,” the latest thumb in the eye of renewed enforcement of immigration laws by the U.S. Departments of Justice and Homeland Security.
But not all Californians are on board with our new status, as demonstrated by a tongue-and-cheek protest using California’s various street signs as a canvas.
Protesters placed new signs along highways near the California border to mock the new status.
California’s sanctuary state law, however, is just the tip of a very large iceberg with immigration enforcement.
New proposals floating in Sacramento include one targeting landlords by prohibiting them from reporting to immigration authorities evicted ex-tenants who are illegal immigrants.
Meanwhile, other proposals are radically changing the way of life in the Golden State.
