Re: sanctuary city ordinance

Thank you for your recent email requesting that the City Council consider
postponing the discussion on a sanctuary city ordinance until after the
April 5th District court hearing for the case of Santa Clara County vs. the
executive order to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities.

The District Court may issue a motion for a preliminary injunction on April
5th or it may continue the hearing and consolidate it with the San
Francisco case that has a similar motion scheduled for April 11th. There is
no certainty as to when the District Court will issue its decision and it
will probably be appealed by the losing party.

Based on community input on this important topic, I have moved this item
from the April 4, 2017 agenda to the April 18, 2017 agenda.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions, concerns or comments. I
look forward to seeing you April 18th.
