I have not forgotten that Pleasanton is the home of Kate Steinle's family, who suffered loss from this controversial legislation.
Many argue there is no clear definition of what is a "sanctuary city" truly means. Most believe it is a city that limits its cooperation with federal immigration enforcement agents to protect law abiding immigrants from deportation. Conversely, any person suspected of committing a serious crime risks deportation.
While I do not favor going into schools and homes to oust illegal immigrants and their children, I strongly believe that anyone who breaks the law must be deported after due process.
Karla Brown on the Costco build:
I supported and voted to build Costco. However, I am disappointed the EIR was NOT done correctly the first time. I am also concerned that the hotels that are paying 1/3 of the infrastructure expenses may want to delay paying their portion and delay building their hotels until the economy is stronger. This will be a gamechanger.
Prior to declaring himself as a candidate for mayor, Jerry Pentin assured me that he would not support any action to declare Pleasanton a sanctuary city.
Jerry Pentin also assured me that he supported the Costco Build in Pleasanton and did vote for approval of the Costco build.
After declaring himself as a candidate for mayor, Monith Ilavarasan informed me that "Alameda County is already a sanctuary county, but I would love nothing more to re-affirm that and declare Pleasanton a sanctuary city".
"I did not support the Costco build in Pleasanton and I did not vote for it".
