US Treaty is applicable here. Santa Monica has no choice but to allow Catholics to display the Creche's on public property since that was the Catholic custom when the US government signed the treaty with Mexico.

Likewise, funding of Catholic schools by the government must be permitted in California since that was the custom when the US government signed the treaty. Indeed, the US government and the cities were funding Catholic and protestant private schools at the time the US signed the treaty; therefore, the US is obligated by treaty to provide equal funding to the Catholic schools.

No choice. The Constitution and US treaties are the Supreme law of the land.
