City council votes 3 to 2 to declare Malibu a sanctuary city

The Malibu City Council has narrowly voted to declare Malibu a sanctuary city.

In doing so Malibu goes on record as not being willing to help the federal government enforce immigration laws.

The vote was three to two.

Those in favor say they are concerned by reports that about 80 students in Malibu's public schools are either here in the country illegally or are the children of illegal immigrants.
