FACULTY IN THE NEWS
Jean Reisz was interviewed whether the city of Los Alamitos opting out of California's sanctuary state law serves as evidence that the law is in violation of federal law. "Whether or not Los Alamitos opted out, that's not evidence that these laws are in violation of federal law," said Reisz. "It's just showing the city isn't in support of it or doesn't want to follow it."
