SIGN OF THE TIMES
“When the enlightened members of the Malibu City Council approved the recent request from actor Martin Sheen to officially make the tony seaside hub an official sanctuary city, they never thought they’d become the butt of a prank joke,” notes the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which monitors immigration policy.
Indeed. Just a few days after Mr. Sheen’s request, the official Malibu city limits sign on Pacific Coast Highway sported a new bolted-on addendum that read: “Official Sanctuary City: Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!”
A consternation and press coverage ensued; local insiders weighed in on the sign phenomenon.
“It’s more a jab at all those lazy [expletive] Malibu kids who won’t mow their own grass, mothers that won’t clean their own homes and basically importing all these illegal aliens who are taking unskilled work,” a local political artist named “Sabo” told KABC, an ABC affiliate.
