LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fake lawn signs with the city seal and an anti-immigrant message have cropped up on a weedy street median near Beverly Hills.
The signs at Burton Way and Doheny Drive read: “Landscaping by L.A. City Council, We’d rather spend your taxes on welfare for illegals.”
City Councilman Paul Koretz condemned the signs on Friday and said they’ll be removed.
In a statement, Koretz said such messages have been turning up since, in his words: “Donald Trump empowered racists and bigots across the country.”
Koretz adds: “The city of Los Angeles will never give in to these types of people.”
Another official-looking fake sign posted last week in Malibu included the city seal and read: “Official Sanctuary City. ‘Cheap Nannies and Gardeners Make Malibu Great!’ (Boyle Heights Not So Much).”
