Tell Larry Hogan NOT to Veto MD Sanctuary Legislation
This petition had 66 supporters
The Maryland House of Delegates passed a bill that will make Maryland a sanctuary state. Hogan has promised to veto this bill "the moment it reaches [his] desk" which flies in the face of Maryland's democratic leanings and also seems to indicate he will not hear from his constituents on this matter.
Although uninformed residents will point to this week's Montgomery County rape that potentially involved illegal immigrants as a reason to fear this measure, sanctuary cities are safer cities. You can read about it some here: http://www.npr.org/sections/codeswitch/2017/01/29/512002076/why-sanctuary-cities-are-safer and here: https://www.americanprogress.org/issues/immigration/reports/2017/01/26/297366/the-effects-of-sanctuary-policies-on-crime-and-the-economy/
Being a sanctuary state promotes trust within communities. Sanctuary is not just for undocumented immigrants appealing asylum cases, visa cases under review or the 4th amendment rights of long-standing Maryland residents who remain undocumented. SB835 protects Maryland law enforcement from federal overreach and intimidation regarding immigration law. SB835 is for all residents and public servants of the Old Line State.
Tell Larry you stand with SB835.
