HBA-DC Sends Letter to the U.S. Senate Urging Opposition to S. 1814, The Stop Sanctuary Cities Act

Monday, October 26, 2015  

The Hispanic Bar Association of the District of Columbia joins a broad spectrum of state and local governments, law enforcement, advocacy, and religious organizations in strong opposition to S. 1814, the Stop Sanctuary Cities Act, and similar pending bills.  While the purported intent of the Stop Sanctuary Cities Act is to make America’s communities more secure, the bill, like the other pending bills, will have the opposite effect.  These bills harm community public safety efforts, raise serious constitutional questions, and pose the threat of unwarranted discrimination. The complete letter can be viewed on our website.
