CA: Pico Rivera Repeals Residency Restrictions

The City of Pico Rivera repealed its residency restrictions which prohibited registrants from living in most of that city, on either a temporary or a permanent basis, and the repeal of the city’s restrictions will become effective on July 12, 2018. The City’s repeal followed the filing of a lawsuit in federal district court on February 22, 2018.

“The Pico Rivera lawsuit is number 30 of 31 lawsuits filed thus far challenging residency restrictions adopted by cities and counties,” stated ACSOL Executive Director Janice Bellucci “The lawsuits have resulted in either the repeal or the significant revision of residency restrictions in almost every case.”

The effort to eliminate residency restrictions in the state of California began in June 2015 when residency restrictions in the City of Grover Beach were challenged. The lawsuit, also filed in federal district court, resulted in a repeal of the city’s residency restrictions.

There are 19 cities and counties in California that currently have residency restrictions. Letters were sent to the 19 cities and counties notifying them that their residency restrictions violate the state and federal constitutions and are inconsistent with a 2015 decision of the California Supreme Court. The letters also warned the cities and counties that they could be sued if they failed to repeal their restrictions. Future litigation is expected to be required in at least some of the cities and counties in order to eliminate their residency restrictions.

      San jose goverment will not let up on the restriction I have filed a law suit PROPER to chanlange that as well as the ripeness clause to look at Megans law and Static 99 test in the Northen Cal Federal district court… my wife was Guardian of her grandchildren all boys she let them go visit their mother and the mother and her husband were rated and CPS got involved and as a result of my background they did not let the grandkids come back to us but I still have two other young boys stepson here with me and that didn’t make no sense to me at the same time I was told that I could not reside in my wife’s house because of my past which occurred in 1981 and I’m not able to live with my daughter and my granddaughter because their residence is way too small and they live there with my mom so I filed this writ for temporary restraining order order to show cause challenging Megan’s Law and static-99 pissed that is not going to get any better but it’s going to get worse if they allow static-99 to prevail I will let you know of the outcome or whatever situation happens God bless you all keep your head high because they can’t keep doing this that I do know they’re going to get wise and realize it’s costing taxpayers way too much money on a broken system that doesn’t work

    Our residency restrictions are state law. Is there a way to fight that?

  3. cool CA RC

    I thought we have taken care of Carson? Didn’t they settle?

    Great news! ACSOL has probably the greatest activity of all organizations in the history of filing federal suits in the state of California for residency restrictions and other registry-spawned laws without a loss. Only the IML seems to be the bugaboo that will never be repealed.

    • David Kennerly, The Government-Driven Life

      Never say “never,” Eric. IML will likely go all the way to the Supreme Court, eventually or, even better, the Registry will be found to be unconstitutional along with the many laws which flow from it. Who knows how many lawsuits will need to be filed before that happens? We don’t have a crystal ball and we must not lock ourselves into an attitude of defeat. Things change and this too shall pass. The only real question is “when?”

      • WTF?

        Oh Boy! I am allowed to live in another place that doesn’t want me to live there.

  5. G4Change

    Thank you Janice, Chance, and everyone from ACSOL! May God Bless and continue what you are doing!

  6. Ironic

    Ironic because Pico Rivera is home of a Sharper Future satellite location and tyrant “doctor” Stacey Samaro (who manages that place. Real doctors don’t impose polygraph on their “patients.”

    ⭐ UPDATE on Maywood?? ⭐
    Is there any news about what happened at last night’s Maywood City Council meeting?
    Did Maywood repeal its residency restrictions?

  8. mike r

    It would be great to have citations to every city in CA that still has these residency OR presence restrictions. But yes, ACSOL and Janice have done great. I hope they get paid for everyone of those filings as well…..

    Cypress Point: I do a particular sport. I go for massage/normal periodically.

    Cypress is full of illegal Massage Parlors! Some have been open for years! I’ve visited a few to get a legitimate massage and 2-3 have turned out to be either providing illegal sensual massages or a basic house of prostitution. Some exist near schools/parks and even a Church! The City of Los Alamitos has declined to enforce the Sanctuary City Law, yet (I ran into these as well) they allow 2 well known Massage Parlors to operate in their city in the open! Selective enforcement?
