D.C.: Mayor Gray's Sanctuary

The nation's capital will continue to be a sanctuary for illegal aliens. Washington, D.C.'s mayor has ordered police to ignore the immigration status of those they stop or arrest.  The executive order of D.C. Mayor William Gray bucks a nationwide trend. Many states, most notably and recently Alabama, are defending immigration laws that permit police to check the status of suspected illegals.

Yet Gray is merely continuing a policy set in 1984 by crack-smoking Mayor Marion Barry.

The Order
Gray's order says that ignoring illegal aliens is a means of making sure that police resources are "wisely" used.

"This executive order ensures public safety by ensuring that our police resources are deployed wisely and our immigrant communities feel safe cooperating with those who are sworn to protect them," Gray said, adding,

The District is home to thousands of immigrants. If they are afraid to cooperate with authorities on criminal investigations because they fear it might endanger their presence in the United States or the presence of a loved one, then it endangers their public safety and that of our entire city.
