The mayor of a Texas border town says he voted for President Donald Trump and is against sanctuary city policies, but he is not for a border wall.
Officials in the City of Laredo, Texas, are considering whether to essentially declare a “sanctuary” jurisdiction, but Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz suggests a moderated approach, such as a resolution. Saenz says he is worried about losing grants and funds from the federal government and Austin.
Laredo, “The Gateway City,” borders Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico, North of the Rio Grande River and has a largely Hispanic population.
Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz posted on his Facebook page that “The City of Laredo will soon decide whether to join in the ongoing anti Texas Senate Bill 4 lawsuit.” The border mayor added, “Presumably cities holding themselves as a ‘sanctuary’ to undocumented persons are subject to sanctions (including withholding of grants or other funds) by Austin and/or Washington.”
