As of December 11, 2019, Boston has officially become a Sanctuary City. It will be a city that limits any cooperation with the federal government’s effort to enforce immigration laws. This bill puts illegals’ rights above the rights of American citizens. ‘Citizens are speaking out but many state leaders are not voicing their opposition,’ writes a columnist in the Boston Broadside, The People’s Paper. A Barnstable County Commissioner calls for the arrest and prosecution of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh who accuses the latter of violating U.S. Immigration Laws and thereby breaching public trust and acting contrary to public interest.
It is a consensus of opinion that perhaps bills which involve the lives of legal residents should have their input and perhaps this could be achieved by their vote.
