LOS ALAMITOS, Calif. — The Latest on immigrant sanctuary in California (all times local):

11 p.m.

A tiny Orange County city has voted to resist California's sanctuary law.

The Los Alamitos City Council gave final approval Monday night to a city ordinance exempting the community of 12,000 from the state law limiting police collaboration with federal immigration agents.

The city says the law is unconstitutional.

Los Alamitos joins about a dozen other cities and the Orange County Board of Supervisors in taking various measures to show displeasure over the law.

Supervisors in San Diego County — which has a border with Mexico — will meet Tuesday to consider joining a Trump administration lawsuit against the sanctuary law.

Leaders in the small Southern California city of Los Alamitos are scheduled to vote on a proposal for a local law to exempt the community from the state's so-called sanctuary law.

Protesters for and against the proposal are expected to gather outside City Hall on Monday ahead of the council meeting set to begin at 6 p.m.

Since the federal government sued California last month over its so-called "sanctuary state" law limiting police collaboration with immigration agents, at least a dozen local governments have voted to either join or support the lawsuit or for resolutions opposing the state's position.

Those include the Board of Supervisors in Orange County, which has more than 3 million people.

Los Alamitos is a city of about 12,000 residents on the northern edge of Orange County.
