Re: Jean Reisz

Jean Reisz was quoted about the legality of Los Alamitos refusal to acknowledge California's sanctuary policies. "The state attorney general can seek to enforce California's laws through a lawsuit," said Reisz. "If California did sue an individual city, I believe a city such as Los Alamitos would raise the defense that the law was unconstitutional or violated federal law. I think the state attorney general might elect to wait for the outcome of the federal lawsuit against California before beginning other lawsuits that are going to be dealing with the same or similar issues in an effort to conserve judicial resources."
