South Gate Disdains Huntington Park "Illegal" Appointments

Following the ongoing activism of We the People Rising against Huntington Park, CA city councilmembers who appointed two illegal aliens - Julian Zatarain and Francisco Medina - to two city commissions, I began researching other cities, whether those councils are also aiding and abetting illegal immigration within their boundaries, and whether they are welcoming illegal aliens into the country, in brazen violation of federal, state, and local laws.

Cudahy openly declared itself, by a 4-1 council vote, a sanctuary city. Maywood has done the same.

One report had informed that the City of South Gate had appointed an illegal to its Housing Authority board. After submitting a public records request on this matter, along with other questions, I received the following response:

Greetings Mr. Schaper,

I am in receipt of your request for information regarding the citizenship status of our City Council Members.  Please be advised that ALL of our City of South Gate Council Members are United States Citizens.   They are all also our Housing Authority Members.  Hence, your request for information on their  status has been satisfied. In regards to the salary of our Council Members, they are provided with a stipend. The yearly amount of $7,200.00 a year, plus a communication allowance of $1,200 and a car allowance of $1,500 yearly.

Should there be anything further, please do not hesitate to call upon the Office of the City Clerk.


Carmen Avalos, CMC, M.Ed., MPA

City Clerk

I noticed that this response did not resolve my concerns about the city's commissions ore advisory boards. After a second public records request to the South Gate city clerk, I received this response:

Greetings Mr. Schaper,

In response to your request for information regarding our South Gate Commissions and Commissioners and their status. Please note that our commissioners are US Citizens.

The city you may be referencing is not South Gate, but Huntington Park which is adjacent to South Gate. If you have further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of the City Clerk.

Warm Regards,


I detected a hint of (justified) disdain in the second response, The South Gate city community appears to hold citizenship in higher regard. "You must be thinking of that other city."

South Gate experienced its own spate of corruption a few years before Bell. Apparently, the rule of law means something on Southeastern Los Angeles County municipality.
