Malibu Gives Sanctuary to Illegal Aliens (Just as Long as they Don’t Try to Use the Beach)

What a relief! All the illegal aliens who can afford the $2.9 million median price for a home in Malibu, California, can sleep easy in their idyllic oceanfront community. Malibu is now a sanctuary city, thanks to the bold action of the city council.

Responding to a request from actor and dad-of-the-year Martin Sheen, the city council approved a sanctuary ordinance by a 3-2 vote, thereby risking the $46,000 the city receives in the form of a block grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (about one month’s mortgage payment for some of the tonier beachfront digs).

Of course, any illegal alien who cannot come up with the $2.9 million necessary to enjoy Malibu’s enlightened hospitality had better not even think about showing up uninvited to enjoy the community’s famous beach. Although the beaches belong to the public – and the Army Corps of Engineers is occasionally called upon to make sure that some oceanfront properties don’t wind up in the ocean – Malibu celebs prefer to keep the riff-raff (which is anyone who doesn’t live in Malibu) off their beaches.

Even in Malibu they’ve got to draw the line somewhere, which means that illegal aliens who cannot afford to live there will be as unwelcome on the beach as the rest of us.

    1st it’s a Sanctuary City, then there’s the “sponsorship” of clusters of immigrants (generally 50 at a time) by some secular group. Then there’s crime, civil rights lawsuits, demands and Malibu will have ghetto second to none.
    Liberalism IS a mental health disorder!

    Legislate that the Army Corps cannot go on any land, for any purpose, that prohibits or restricts unlimited access to it by the general public.
    Malibu wants to “protect” their beaches (and their homes ON those beaches) they pay for it themselves. Or, conversely, the US Government takes, by Eminent Domain, the beach AND a 200 yard inland from high tide mark, section of beachfront to “preserve coastal integrity”, thus evicting the low and scummy. (I bet you thought they were the “high and mighty”.)
    Bet you’ll hear them sing another song.

    That great immigration advocate and champion of the people Mark Zuckerberg put up a wall around his very large property in Hawaii that blocked the open view his neighbors had long enjoyed and he attempted to cut off access to property that long time Hawaiians had regarded as their own for generations. Little mention of that in the media.

    If you ever need proof of a double standard, the press has gone back decades to dig up every Russian that a member of the Trump team has ever shook hands with. Meanwhile they ignored the mountain of evidence that the Clintons have done pay for play since they left the White House, either directly with their $250,000 “speeches” or indirectly through the Clinton Foundation and that included many direct Russian connections. They didn’t make 200 million because of Hillary’s winning personality.
