Los Angeles public schools passed a resolution on Tuesday designating their campuses as sanctuaries for undocumented immigrants, reports Fox News.
The city's resolution was crafted to refine a measure passed in 2016 that made L.A. public schools as safe places for undocumented immigrants and their families.
The resolution came after a man was arrested by ICE agents while he was dropping his daughters off at school in February.
The resolutions bars schools from inquiring about the immigration status of a student. The schools are also planning to help inform students and their families about what their rights are in terms of the federal government.
L.A. School Board President Steve Zimmer said that immigrants across the city have been fearful ever since Donald Trump became president and vowed to crack down on the flow of undocumented immigrants into the United States.
The resolution has drawn criticism on social media.
“This act of noncooperation follows in an important history of noncooperation with unjust laws, unjust actions that are contrary to our Constitution and contrary to our value system, but also contrary to our mission as a school district,” Zimmer said.
