California Town A 'Sanctuary' For Illegal Immigrants

MAYWOOD, CA - MAY 17: A worker takes a lunch break during construction of a new school May 17, 2006 in the Los Angeles-area city of Maywood, California. In November, voters, angered that city police were stopping and seizing hundreds of cars whose unlicensed drivers frequently turned out to be illegal immigrants, elected a new majority on the city council. The new council majority promptly voted to eliminate the police department's traffic division, resulting in car impoundments dropping from 240 a month to 40. The city in January also officially opposed a proposed federal law that would have criminalized illegal immigration and forced local police to enforce immigration law. Approximately 96 percent of the city's 29,000 residents is Latino, with an additional 10,000 illegal residents living within city limits, according to estimates. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)
