Malibu Gets Punked: The Unofficial Sanctuary City Sign Takes Aim At Malibu Elite

On April 4th, mysterious “official” looking City signs appeared at both ends of Malibu. This obvious effort to humiliate the residents of Malibu after City Council voted 3-2 in favor of becoming a Sanctuary City and the L.A. Times article that sparked the original controversy.

Resident Mikke Pierson’s quotes in the article were the obvious inspiration unfairly representing the majority of this community. The signs were taken down within hours of going viral on social media.

The sign appeared at Leo Carrillo state beach on April 4th with the obvious intent of humiliating Malibu for becoming a Sanctuary City. Council member Rick Mullen told local news it was a “prank” and City Manager Reva Feldman said it would be moved immediately.
