Sanctuary city.

Dear Menlo Park City Council,

Please consider postponing the vote on a sanctuary city ordinance until the court hears the case of Santa Clara County vs. the executive order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities. I do not want the sanctuary city ordinance to fail because of concerns around federal funds being withheld from Menlo Park. I support the sanctuary city ordinance because doing so will reassure our marginalized immigrant community and codify our values of Menlo Park supporting all families, regardless of their immigration status. Local law enforcement and funds should not be used to manage a federal issue, especially one that is contrary to our local values. A sanctuary city ordinance is also the best way to uphold the US constitution.

Thank you for your consideration,

Marisa Nelson
Menlo Park resident
