Statement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Phoenix City Council Punts Sanctuary City Issue By Creating a Committee to Consider Sanctuary StatusStatement from Councilman Sal DiCiccio: Phoenix City Council Punts Sanctuary City Issue By Creating a Committee to Consider Sanctuary Status<div class="ExternalClass9906D986977B4A7BAB0D6F6A54B19BC7"><div>"Phoenix will never be a Sanctuary City like Chicago, San Francisco and New York.  We have some of the toughest laws in the country as it relates to immigration enforcement.  Phoenix is currently one of the toughest in the nation and will continue to be so.</div><div><br></div><div>Once again, however, we see politicians doing what they do best- protecting their own political careers.</div><div>Today we saw the Phoenix City Council do exactly that. Instead of deciding this issue once and for all, they formed a committee to consider the Sanctuary City issue and come back in 30 days with ideas and recommendations. This is what politicians do when they want to punt an issue instead of taking a stand and delivering on their promises.</div><div><br></div><div>Unfortunately, this move just gives the public more uncertainty and gives them the impression that Phoenix still may become a Sanctuary City, when the truth is we follow the law and are one of the toughest on this issue.</div><div><br></div><div>My prediction: This committee will not change the laws and we will NOT become a Sanctuary City. These same politicians may find some small nuggets to hand out, but I predict no real change will occur on the Sanctuary status of Phoenix.”</div><div><br></div><div>The ad hoc committtee memo can be <a href="/district6site/Documents/170215%20adhoc%20committee%20final.pdf">read here. </a></div><div><br></div></div>2/16/2017 1:00:00 AMDavid Urbinato602-495-5405
