The resolution aims to allow the city to enforce its enforcement out of choice.No executive orders have been issued We are violating or expressly violating our constitutionally protected rights by the State of California or the United States federal government. “

The resolution states that “the city believes in the separation of powers, individual rights and the rule of law outlined in the United States Constitution, including the freedom of the local government to exercise local control over issues relating to citizens living within the city.” Jurisdictional boundaries. ”

“This is the way local government takes care of its citizens and what we do,” said Councilor Dave Pittman. According to the East Bay Times.

“I’m sure it won’t cause any financial loss to the city,” Huber told ABC7. “You can revise it in the future and do what you want but it doesn’t endanger any state or federal funding.”

Council member Art Hartley described the resolution as a “completely toothless” “political statement”, but Thompson described it as “a line in the sand.”

“It’s just basically drawing the line. It’s not necessarily against a specific order. We’re not talking about an order that has been pushing us lately. It’s a torrent of orders,” Thompson told local media earlier this month.

Mayor Chuck Reynolds said the resolution was passed to “reaffirm to people what kind of government we live under.”

“With all these emergencies and leaders declaring an emergency, it puts a person in charge and they can pretty much do whatever they want even if an emergency is no longer an immediate threat. They are hesitant to give up that power.” Reynolds said.

California faces repeated orders revolving around the coronavirus. The state was the first in the nation to announce a public school student vaccine order last month, which sparked protests.

More than that 1,000 people gathered in Sacramento Last month to speak out against the announcement. Parents carried plates with the words “My children are not a science experiment to keep you safe” and “My body, my choice.”

Thompson said in the comments of the resolution, “American culture and way of life are being challenged at its root and, as a republic, are distorted by radical politicians who forget that power belongs to the people.”
