In California tonight amnesty for illegal aliens tops the agenda of one advocacy group and that group is pushing to have the state of California declared a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Casey Wian reports.

(BEGIN VIDEOTAPE)

CASEY WIAN, CNN CORRESPONDENT (voice-over): The California chapter of LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens unanimously voted to declare call what it called California Del Norte (ph), a sanctuary for illegal immigrants. The group, the largest and oldest Latino group in the U.S. demands an end to all state and local police cooperation with federal immigration authorities. Things like immigration and customs enforcement raids of businesses employing illegal aliens.

JAN TUCKER, CALIFORNIA LULAC: Most responsible law enforcement officials would agree with us on -- at least to the extent that when local police get involved in trying to enforce immigration laws, that it just creates an environment that's hostile towards the police, no one cooperates with them whether they're here legally, illegally.

WIAN: California LULAC also wants the Mexican government to seek the assistance of a third nation to resolve disputes with the United States over American immigration laws and their enforcement. The group cites Article XXI of the 1848 Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, which ended the Mexican-American War and transferred part of northern Mexico to the United States. LULAC sanctuary state declaration seemed ironic to this California lawmaker.

Scrolll about halfway down the transcript for the rest of the story. Unbloodybelievable.

There giant joker in the deck is if our economy goes into a full blown recession-------that may 'advise' Calif's lawmakers to change their collective minds. Otherwise; the Federal government may overrule Sacramento.

Too; the specter of an imploding housing market is very real in Calif as well-----worse than even here in Arizona. Calif may/will drop more steeply.

And who the hell was saying that most Latin Americans are anti-illegal?! This is an entire Latin American organization! Anecdotal evidence does not present clear arguments.
