Mayor Lee on Federal Court Ruling Regarding San Francisco’s Sanctuary City Policy

“We applaud today’s ruling granting a preliminary injunction against the Administration withholding federal funds to cities that disagree with its immigration enforcement policies.

San Francisco is and will remain a Sanctuary City. We know that Sanctuary Cities are safer, healthier, more productive places to live.

San Francisco’s Sanctuary City laws are in compliance with federal law. If the federal government believes there is a need to detain a serious criminal they can obtain a criminal warrant, which we will honor, as we always have.”
