'Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome': Signs Mock California's Sanctuary Status

'Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome': Signs Mock California's Sanctuary Status”

A photo of the sign recently circulated.

California officially became a "sanctuary state" on Monday - and opponents of the new declaration were there to troll the Golden State's government.

The new law going into effect coincides with the week during which the five-time deporteee, seven-time felon illegal alien who killed Kate Steinle is scheduled to be sentenced - not for murder, but for possessing the firearm that killed Steinle. According to Fox News, motorists entering from Nevada and Arizona were greeted with the official-looking signs.

Signs mocking the declaration appeared on "Welcome to California" highway signs on Monday.

A sign placed in Malibu, Calif., in April 2017 is similar to one seen in January.

This isn't the first time, California highways have been hit with the anti-illegal immigration signs.

The bill was passed at the same time the Trump Administration threatened to crack down on sanctuary cities.

Though the bill bars officials from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities, it does not keep officials from the US Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or the Department of Homeland Security "from doing their own work in any way", Brown said in a statement after signing the bill.

"Official Sanctuary City 'Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!' (Boyle Heights Not So Much)", the sign read, according to FOX5.

"This bill strikes a balance that will protect public safety, while bringing a measure of comfort to those families who are now living in fear everyday", the Democrat said of Senate Bill 54 on October 5. Malibu officials promptly denounced the sign, and city councilwoman Laura Rosenthal told the Los Angeles Times then that "It's very disheartening that anyone would put up such an ugly sign".
