Drivers entering California are being greeted with signs proclaiming it an "OFFICIAL SANCTUARY STATE," according to photos circulating on social media appearing to show a prankster attached the official-looking blue signs just below legitimate "Welcome to California" markers.
The sanctuary state sign, which adds "Felons, Illegals and MS13 [gang members] welcome," is similar to one hung up by a Malibu activist last year.
“Democrats Need The Votes!” reads a message on the signs, which are plastered with the Great Seal of California and a donkey, one of the symbols of the Democratic Party.
Here is a photo of the sign
OMG! Look at this sign someone put up on the 15 Freeway between LA and Las Vegas!— Kambree Kawahine Koa (@KamVTV) January 1, 2018
It reads :
Welcome to California. Official Sanctuary State.
Felons, Illegals and MS13 Welcome
Democrats need the Votes! #NewYearsDay pic.twitter.com/pc5xRnqZIB
