Two more cities in California have voted to support a lawsuit by the Department of Justice against the state's sanctuary policies.
The Fountain Valley City Council voted to join in after Rep. Dana Rohrabacher offered to pay for the city to file a brief in support of the lawsuit, the Los Angeles Times reported.
And according to The San Diego Union-Tribune, Escondido in San Diego County voted to file a brief in support of the Justice Department's lawsuit by Friday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.
The Escondido City Council voted 4-1 in support of the brief after a meeting "filled with name-calling and impassioned pleas," the Union-Tribune reported.
Other California locations are in favor of the lawsuit, which challenges a state law that took effect on Jan. 1 that restricts local law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.
Orange County had previously joined the lawsuit, and in March, Los Alamitos residents passed an ordinance exempting the city from the sanctuary law.
