For a City Council that isn’t “unnerved” that Spokane might be declared a “Sanctuary City” I find it a bit odd that their City Council Website provides a link asking the question “Is Spokane A Sanctuary City?”
The link goes directly to the SPD IA Webpage, which of course links some of the Policy and Procedures I addressed here, as well as some data which might give some insight into just how big a problem SPD Cops confronting undocumented people might be…that is if you take a careful look.
What is missing, for some reason, from the City Council’s Webpage is this, which makes Cops, or anyone in City employment, asking people their immigration status against City Law, a fact which will make or break President Trump’s retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. John Kelly’s decision to declare Spokane a “Sanctuary City,” and the possible loss of a pot full of Federal Bucks for Spokane. Which of course begs the question… “If everything was hunky dory in the first place what the hell was the Ordinance for?”
I’m kind of wondering exactly who they are trying to fool, certainly not me, and even though I’m no expert I am somewhat familiar with what the Feds have in the way of resources to check on things especially public comments people have made and the background of issues. This one was BIG, with both sides battling it out.
Another thing I’m sure of is that calling the head honcho of any organization in public a “misogynist” and “rapist” isn’t going to get you a raise, and might not be a good thing to have done if a City is looking for some Federal Money.
Maybe it is a good time for some people to start taking care of stuff at home instead of trying to be a player on the National Stage… admit it was a mistake and dump the damn Ordinance.
I REPORT YOU DECIDE!!!
