LOS ANGELES ( —  Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck has made a turnaround in regards to Special Order 7.

Days after a LA County Superior Court judge said Beck didn’t have the authority to be more lenient on immigrants — and not impound their cars if they were found driving without a license — the chief rescinded the department’s policy.

A few days ago, Beck told the LA Times he stood by the special order calling it “legal and necessary” and needed for moral and practical purposes.

Current state law requires police to impound any vehicle driven by someone without a license.

The Chief issued the special order to officers telling them to ignore the policy.

Mayor Eric Garcetti has said the city is looking into the possibility of an appeal of the judge’s ruling.
