    Phoenix Mayor: Phoenix Can't Legally Become A Sanctuary City

    Phoenix officials are advising the City Council to deny a resident's petition to adopt so-called sanctuary policies to shield immigrants.

    While the City Council is scheduled to consider the petition at a meeting next Wednesday, Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton clarified the cityís position at a press conference on Friday.

    ďBut because of 1070 as a legal matter, we canít become a sanctuary city," he said.

    A memo by the city attorney says the petitionís request is vague and amounts to asking the city and its employees to violate a requirement set by the law.

    President Trump has threatened to withdraw federal funding from sanctuary cities.
