  sanctuary-city-greenTo be or not to be a Sanctuary City.  Did voters vote?

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:

A president who cares 

“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.

 Let’s say to sanctuary cities:  “If you refuse to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement, you will lose your federal funding.”
