TFT - California Judge: City Can Ignore Sanctuary-State Law
The City of Huntington Beach, California has won a sweeping victory in court over the state’s 2017 sanctuary law, Senate Bill (SB) 54. Huntington Beach sued the state back in April as part of a growing wave of local governments and officials resisting enforcement of the sanctuary law. And on September 27, Orange County Superior Court Judge James Crandall ruled that because Huntington Beach is a charter city, forcing it to follow SB 54 would violate the state constitution. Thus, the city is free to set its own policy.
