| SFGOP Asks City Leaders not to Support Sanctuary Ordinance
Sep 25, 2009
As a follow up to the resolution it passed at its September meeting, the San Francisco Republican Party has mailed letters to the Mayor, all members of the Board of Supervisors, the City Attorney and the District Attorney asking them not to support Ordinance 091032 proposed by Supervisor David Campos, and to re-evaluate the current sanctuary policy to ensure that it complies with federal and state law.
“Ordinance 091032 is bad legislation,” said Howard Epstein, San Francisco Republican Party Chairman. “We have asked Supervisor Campos to remove the legislation from consideration and for its co-sponsors to withdrawal their support. We have asked other elected City leaders to oppose it.”
“We hope that our leaders will take this opportunity to affirm their commitment to having San Francisco follow the law,” commented Ed Sheppard, San Francisco Republican Party Vice-Chair of Communications. “We particularly hope the Mayor and the District Attorney do so, as certain policies enacted by the Mayor’s office, and the District Attorney’s “Back on Track” program, directly resulted in acts of violence committed by individuals who should not have been on the streets.”
The individual letters sent to the Mayor, each member of the Board of Supervisors, the City Attorney and the District Attorney can be found on the San Francisco Republican Party website, www.sfgop.org.
