Salt Lake City joins Amicus brief opposing President Trump’s “sanctuary city” Executive Order

Today, Mayor Jackie Biskupski announced Salt Lake City has joined 33 other cities and counties across the United States in a friend-of-the-court brief supporting Santa Clara County’s motion to block enforcement of President Donald Trump’s Executive Order 13678. The Executive Order signed on January 25, 2017, addresses immigration enforcement in the United State, and threatens jurisdictions that are deemed by the Administration to be “sanctuary jurisdictions” with reprisals.

Mayor Biskupski’s statement on President Trump’s budget proposal

“While campaigning in cities throughout the country last year, then candidate Donald Trump spoke often about the “issue of urban renewal” and the “rebuilding of our inner cities.”

 

Not quite two months into his term of office, President Trump is proposing a budget which will strip billions of dollars cities use to improve infrastructure and provide services to residents most in need.
