Black Mayors on Plan to Deploy Unit Officers to Sanctuary Cities
Published on February 18, 2020
Washington, DC – The following statement was released by AAMA President and Mayor of Augusta, GA, Mayor Hardie Davis, Jr.:
“The most recent act by the Trump Administration to deploy special forces into sanctuary cities is violent, predatory and inhumane. These forces are typically called upon to pursue violent criminals and smugglers at the border not families and those living and contributing peacefully in our communities. We are better than this. We stand as members of the African American Mayors Association with our fellow mayors who are leading sanctuary cities, and who take a sensible approach to immigration reform."
