Mayor Sarno Responds to City Council’s Edict to Become a Sanctuary City and Not Enforce Laws

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Mayor Domenic J. Sarno states, “First of all, like many others, I fully believe in and support legal immigration. Again, our city’s stance is based on the law and local, state and federal regulations and statutes on public health, safety, housing and property tax assessment. My administration has a fiduciary responsibility not to jeopardize potentially millions of dollars of federal funding our city utilizes to continue to enhance all our citizens and business community, by becoming a sanctuary city. I urge our federal government to come up with a plausible concrete solution to this issue and stop dropping it in the laps of municipal government. To that, my administration will continue to move forward to make sure these laws are adhered to – our city employees and officials are only doing their jobs, which is what our taxpayers expect.”

Please see the City Council’s order below.
