Which CA cities are Sanctuary Cities? Santa Cruz, Watsonville – they are Sanctuary Cities. What about Scotts Valley? Capitola? Can residents in Aptos, CA vote?
In general, do voters get to vote to be or not to be a Sanctuary City?
Below is a Letter published in the Santa Cruz Sentinel, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2016:
“Listening to President Trump’s inaugural address was most inspiring. As the mother of a United States Marine officer I know that now there is now a man in the White House who really cares about our military, our veterans, families and keeping this country safe. I am ashamed that on leaving office Mr. Obama released 233 drug dealers. How does that make our children safe?
Oh, but I forgot, Santa Cruz is a sanctuary city so this release does not worry its residents.”
— Linda Eberhardt, Scotts Valley
So — is it time to end sanctuary cities? In 2017, there are about 300 canctuary cities — up form about 70 in 2011.
Remember Kate Steinle — who was murdered while walking with her father in sanctuary city San Francisco. She was murdered by by an illegal who had been deported multiple times.
