Costa Mesa, CA.: A "Rule Of Law" City; Says "NO" to Sanctuary City Designation

Thank God!  Someone in this state has got their heads on straight. Now this is a group I can vote for!

The (Costa Mesa, CA.) City Council made it clear Tuesday night that people who are in the country illegally are not welcome in their city.
Council members voted to pass a resolution declaring Costa Mesa a "Rule of Law City" at the behest of Mayor Allan Mansoor, who has long been known as a vocal opponent of illegal immigration.
"I have a lot of concerns with cities calling themselves sanctuary cities," Mansoor said before the vote. "It's important we state that we do not support illegal immigration."
Mansoor's proposal was met with comments from five public speakers, all of whom criticized it. Some said the declaration would paint the city in a bad light and polarize the community. Others called the resolution a political move by Mansoor in his bid for the state Assembly.
The council voted 4-0 in favor of the declaration. Council member Katrina Foley was absent.
