Is Long Beach a Sanctuary City?
Yes, Long Beach is a sanctuary city. The City provides services to all residents, regardless of immigration status. The Long Beach City Council has approved new protections for illegal immigrants that reside in the city. The so-called sanctuary city law will prohibit local law enforcement and officials from collecting information about a person's immigration status. The "Long Beach Values Act" expanded a restriction on how local officials can cooperate or notify federal immigration authorities unless legally obligated to do so by a court order. The Long Beach Police Department has a policy prohibiting their participation in civil immigration operations and enforcement. Long Beach Police Department does not participate in immigration check points, and does not attempt to determine anyone's immigration status when they report a crime or are a victim.
Indigenous people have lived in coastal Southern California for over 10,000 years, and several successive cultures have inhabited the present-day area of Long Beach. By the 16th-century arrival of Spanish explorers, the dominant group was the Tongva people.
Before the World War II, Long Beach had a sizable Japanese-American population, who worked in the fish canneries on Terminal Island and owned small truck (produce) farms in the area. Due to exaggerated fears on the coast and racial prejudice, state officials persuaded the national government to remove Japanese nationals and Japanese Americans for internment in 1942 to inland facilities. Most did not return to the city after their release from the camps. Due to this and other factors, Japanese Americans now make up less than 1% of the population of Long Beach, but the Japanese Community Center and a Japanese Buddhist Church survive. The Japanese-American Cultural Center is over the Gerald Desmond Bridge and the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro.
