    As of August 2006, cities and counties that have sanctuary policies include:

    Anchorage, AK
    Fairbanks, AK
    Chandler, AZ
    Phoenix, AZ2
    Fresno, CA
    Los Angeles, CA
    National City, CA4
    San Diego, CA

    Sonoma County, CA
    Evanston, IL
    Chicago, IL3
    Cicero, IL
    Cambridge, MA
    Orleans, MA
    Portland, ME
    Baltimore, MD
    Takoma Park, MD
    Ann Arbor, MI

    Marion County, OR
    Austin, TX
    Houston, TX
    Katy, TX
    Virginia Beach, VA
    Seattle, WA
    Madison, WI


    Currently there are two statewide policies regarding sanctuary for illegal aliens:


    In May 2003, Alaska's state legislature passed a joint resolution prohibiting state agencies from using resources or institutions for the purpose of enforcing federal immigration laws.

    In 1987, Oregon passed a law that prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using agency moneys, equipment or personnel for the purpose of detecting or apprehending foreign citizens based on violation of federal immigration law. Oregon law, however, does permit their law enforcement officers to exchange information with federal authorities to verify the immigration status of an individual arrested for criminal offenses.
    It looks like you left out Denver and Boulder, Colorado. (As well as several other smaller Colorado cities too numerous to name).

    However, I would note that there is a state law in Colorado passed a year or two ago stating that If an illegal is arrested (actually jailed, not just contacted or cited) then the arresting agency or jail must notify ICE. Of course ICE never does anything unless the person is arrested for a violent felony, but it’s the thought that counts!

    Wasn't LAPD one of those departments that I've heard of having trouble recruiting new hires in recent years? Well I can see one of the reason why by this example of how quickly they are to throw their own under the bus.

    Dad heard on the radio this morning Bratton said police officers are the fastest group of people he knows to get out of control.

    LAPD chief: Cops who fired at protesters are off streets

    LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- Police Chief William Bratton said Sunday that up to 60 members of an elite squad that swarmed into a park and fired rubber bullets during a May Day immigration rally are no longer on the street.

    Bratton said he spent the weekend viewing video of the MacArthur Park incident and he said LAPD failures were widespread with officers from the top on down culpable.

    "I'm not going to defend the indefensible," Bratton told journalists during a meeting at a television studio in Hollywood.

    "Things were done that shouldn't have been done."

    Journalists were among those roughed up as Metropolitan Division's B Platoon moved through MacArthur and fired 148 rubber bullets to break up what had been a peaceful and lawful immigration rally.

    Police said they moved in after rocks and bottles were thrown at them by 30 to 40 agitators, he said.

    The Metropolitan Division is the city's premier police squad, made up of experienced officers who have extensive training in crowd control.

    Bratton said up to 60 members of the Metro's B Platoon are no longer in the field. Additionally, he said, some officers will "in all likelihood" not return to the Metropolitan Division.

    "Some of this will be career-impacting," Bratton said, adding that imposition of permanent discipline will await completion of the Police Department investigation.

    Journalist organizations asked why officers ignored LAPD policies toward the news media worked out after reporters were assaulted during the 2000 Democratic National Convention.

    A 2002 agreement called for designation of a safe spot for reporters covering news events. LAPD spokeswoman Mary Grady acknowledged reporters were not given "a designated safe spot" at MacArthur Park.

    "There appears to have been here a failure to communicate," Press Photographers Association local president John McCoy said.

    WOW! Guilty? Already? Like x said usually politicians and the media say alleged. I feel for the officers in LA. They've been thrown under the bus without any benefit of the doubt or due process.

    Now that is one of the best "plays on words" I have seen in a long, long time.

    Viva La Raza.....clever, sir.


    It is just a sad shame that people who break the law just by being here are considered by some to be "more worthy" than our law officers who put their lives on the line every day to protect them.

    During his 10-minute address, he told the parishioners, "It doesn't matter to me whether you have papers or not. You came to work. We all have the same dreams. We want peace and decent jobs."

    So it looks like Villaraigosa officially supports illegal immigration...

    L.A. mayor vows action against guilty officers

    1. Why are the officers "Guilty"? If it was a dirt-bag, filmed shooting someone with intent to kill, the L A Slimes would have referred to the dirt bag as "Accused" and the crime as "alleged".

    2. Looks like if you are not Hispanic, and you are in Los Angeles, you are a sub class.

    3. Wonder who did all this investigation so the mayor could declare the officers "Guilty"?
