WHEREAS, the targeting of immigrants undermines our democracy and our common humanity and degrades life everywhere but especially for the residents of a proud and richly diverse City such as the City of Jersey City; and

WHEREAS, the identification and reporting of immigrants who have not been charged much less convicted of any crime unduly burdens and diverts municipal resources; disrupts and interferes with the City’s duty to deliver basic municipal services such as healthcare, education and police protection; and

WHEREAS, undue collaboration between local law enforcement and ICE will make immigrants less likely to report crimes, act as witnesses in criminal investigations and prosecutions, and provide intelligence to law enforcement which is especially problematic where the victim of a crime is an immigrant; and Continue reading EXECUTIVE ORDER OF THE MAYOR OF THE CITY OF JERSEY CITY ESTABLISHING THE CITY OF JERSEY CITY AS A SANCTUARY CITY
