'Sanctuary City' sign in Malibu called prank, removed

MALIBU, Calif. (AP) — Malibu has removed an official-looking sign calling attention to its status as a sanctuary city.

The sign, posted along the Pacific Coast Highway, said, "Official Sanctuary City: Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!' (Boyle Heights Not So Much)."

Boyle Heights is a Los Angeles neighborhood that's home to many Latino immigrants.

Malibu councilmembers told KCBS-TV on Tuesday (http://cbsloc.al/2nXOHKx ) that the blue and white sign was not put up by the city and was likely someone's idea of a prank. It was gone by Wednesday morning.

The City Council of the celebrity enclave voted 3-2 last month to prohibit use of public resources to enforce federal civil immigration law.
