Simi Valley City Council reaffirms its opposition to California's sanctuary law

As reported by VC Star on June 26, 2018 

"At the conclusion of a 5½-hour, frequently raucous meeting Monday night, the Simi Valley City Council reaffirmed its previous decision to support the Trump administration’s lawsuit against California’s emotionally charged sanctuary state law.

It is the only city council in Ventura County to do so.

The council voted 4-0 to file an “amicus” letter — commonly known as a “friend of the court” letter — in support of the federal lawsuit brought by the administration of President Donald Trump once the litigation is appealed to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. 

Councilman Glen Becerra was absent due to a family medical emergency.

The council’s vote included the rescinding of a decision it made in closed session April 23 to have City Attorney Lonnie Eldridge file an amicus letter in support of the lawsuit with the trial court, U.S. District Court Judge John Mendez. Eldridge never sent the letter and said Monday night that it’s too late to do so: Mendez isn’t accepting any more of them."
