Needles, California: Members of the Needles City Council will be discussing on Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 a resolution declaring the City of Needles a “Constitutional Sanctuary City” supporting Constitutional Rights, especially during COVID-19 restrictions.
The resolution declaring the City of Needles a “Constitutional Sanctuary City” was requested by Needles City Council Member Timothy Terral, and is similar to a resolution that was brought forwarded to the Mohave County Board of Supervisors in Mohave County, Arizona in a strategic move intended to voice their support for Constitutional Rights as their county and state go through sweeping COVID-19 restrictions imposed by state and federal governments.
