Los Angeles Mayor Says City Workers Will Be Deputized to Enforce Stay-at-Home Order

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti tonight on CNN implied that citizens who fail to comply with the stay-at-home mandate could be arrested.

Residents of the City of Los Angeles are ordered to remain in their homes — with lawful exceptions made for critical tasks such as securing food and health, safety and medical necessities, as well as caring for children, elder adults, family, friends and people with disabilities.

“The is a public health emergency,” the mayor told CNN’s Chris Cuomo. “We are certainly going to deputize many city employees to walk those streets.”

The mayor said if the deputized city workers see someone not in compliance, they will “pay them a visit and let them know this is something they have to comply with.”

It’s for their own health, the mayor said.

“And in the very rare cases someone doesn’t comply, we will enforce that,” he declared.

That’s not a stay-at-home order, that sounds more like martial law.
