Make Pontiac Michigan a Sanctuary City

This petition had 109 supporters

This group advocates for the designation of Pontiac as a “sanctuary city,” a city that has adopted a policy of protecting undocumented immigrants by not prosecuting them solely for violating federal immigration laws. Other cities like Los Angeles, Chicago, and Detroit have successfully become sanctuary cities.


We call for the City of Pontiac to cease using municipal funds or resources to enforce national immigration laws, which destroy and tear families apart each day. We call for Oakland county sheriff department and other municipal employees to cease inquiring about a person’s immigration status in irrelevant matters.  We also call for Pontiac city officials to work together with immigrant rights leaders from within the city to create a warm and welcoming municipality for all people.


Este grupo aboga por la designacion de Pontiac como una "ciudad santuario," una ciudad que ha adoptado una poliza de proteger a los inmigrantes indocumentados al no enjuiciarlos solamente por violar leyes federales de inmigracion. Otras ciudades como Los Angeles, Chicago, y Detroit se han convertido exitosamente en ciudades santuario.


Llamamos a que la ciudad de Pontiac pare de usar fondos municipales o recursos para reforzar leyes nacionales de inmigracions, que destruyen y rompen familias cada dia. Llamamos a que la policia /sheriff de Oakland Country y otros empleados municipales paren de pedir sobre el estatus migratorio de una person en asuntos irrelevantes.
