Re: Please join sanctuary city lawsuit

Hello,

Thank you for your email. I have scheduled this topic for next Tuesday’s
City Council agenda. Because the language of the Trump administration’s
Executive Order to withhold funds from “sanctuary” jurisdictions is so
ambiguous, it makes it hard for any jurisdiction to know whether it might
be viewed as a “sanctuary” by the federal government The result of this
ambiguity is that many jurisdictions, both conservative and liberal, do not
know if they might be targeted for defunding under this Executive Order.
This creates extreme uncertainty for their communities and in their ability
to make fiscal plans. Thus, I am recommending that the City of Menlo Park
join amicus briefs in support of both Santa Clara County and the City and
County of San Francisco in their litigation challenging the Trump
administration’s Executive Order. The broader topic of whether Menlo Park
should become a sanctuary city will be on the City Council agenda for its
meeting on April 4th. Again, thank you for your input on this important
topic.

Sincerely,

Kirsten Keith,

Mayor

Dear Council members,

I am writing to urge you to join the Amicus Curiae brief in support of
Santa Clara County in its suit to protect federal funding for sanctuary
cities. If federal funding is withdrawn from Santa Clara County, it will
severely damage the economy of the entire Bay Area. Please add this to the
agenda for next Tuesday so the brief reaches the court by the March 22nd
deadline.

Yours sincerely,

Patrick Daly
330 Pope St.
Menlo Park
