Phoenix to Vote on Sanctuary City Status, I Will Vote NO

By Sal DiCiccio
Phoenix City Council District 6

Phoenix City Council will vote on a request for Sanctuary City status on February 15th at a formal council meeting.

I am firmly opposed to the effort to make Phoenix a Sanctuary City. I don't believe any local government should be able to pick and choose the laws they want to enforce. Additionally, I believe such a move would be illegal and would put our officers in the unethical position of having to ignore their oath to uphold state and federal laws.

    I read that Sanctuary cities in Arizona is illegal. So isn’t the point of this moot? Why is there such a rush on this? Who is pushing for this to happen and why? If this were to happen, then what are the far reaching effects of creating a Sanctuary city? What facts and planning documents have been reviewed or published about how this would operate here in Phoenix. Do we have the resources or personnel to properly implement a plan such as this?What impact will this have on the current members of the Phoenix community? What about monetary impact? What will it mean for the population in real facts-not touchy feely-knee-jerk reactions. How about the moral of the police and federal officers that are made to choose to which laws to enforce or uphold?
