Santa Maria ICE Facility Appealed

Three separate appeals have been filed in response to the Santa Maria Planning Commission’s 2/5 approval ​— ​which saw 5,000 people show up in opposition ​— ​of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility. The appeals, filed by homeowners, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC), and Community Initiatives for Visiting Immigrants in Confinement (CIVIC), allege, among other things, that the center will harm the health, safety, and property values of residents and will be an eyesore. All appeals will be heard by the Santa Maria City Council on 3/12.
