Subject: Support Santa Clara County Litigation to Protect Federal Funding

To:  City Council, Menlo Park, CA
From: Gail Sredanovic

I am writing to request that you support Santa Clara County to protect federal funding for the county.

Please place a  consideration of  joining  the Amicus Curiae brief in support of Santa Clara County, in the litigation to protect the Federal funding of so-called "sanctuary cities" on the agenda for the next City Council meeting. All Amicus Curiae briefs are due to the court by March 22nd, so we need City Council action before then.
The measures limiting local law enforcement participation in immigration work are reasonable and contribute to public trust in law enforcement. Although cities that pass them are called sanctuary cities, that is an inaccurate use of the term. Sanctuary historically means a space where cannot be reached by by the law. This is not the case in cities where limits are placed but law enforcement will still arrest given a signed warrant.
Proposals to withhold federal dollars from a jurisdiction are on very shaky grounds. Moreover the withholding of Federal dollars from Santa Clara County will immeasurably affect our entire region, Menlo Park included. Please join the Amicus Curiae brief in support of local control.
