At the April 17 meeting, the City Council sat silent when discussion emerged. On “sanctuary” cities, Council members sat like mummies as Kelly Boyd refused to put the subject on the agenda.
I have news for you Mr. Boyd and other council members; it is a dereliction of duty to ignore the mandate of the federal government to not arrest illegal criminals who are within our city. This is not a lovey dovey position about caring for illegals that live peacefully in our community but rather a policy of following federal law and deporting dangerous persons.
Since when has City Council decided to ignore federal mandates putting the safety of our community at risk? If anyone is hurt or killed by an illegal immigrant’s action, the city, therefore us, will be morally and financially responsible for all damages. Following the example the council has set, I have decided to pick and chose which city ordinances I intend to follow. From now on I intend to walk my dog Oliver on the beach any time of day, fall, winter, spring and summer.
