Albuquerque mayor Richard Berry announced today that everyone who is arrested in Albuquerque will have their immigration status checked, regardless of race. Berry announced the plan, which Berry characterized as a “not an immigration issue” but “a public safety issue,” to end what he called Albuquerque’s sanctuary city status.
“This plan ends the sanctuary city policy for criminals while protecting victims and witnesses,” Mayor Berry said. “By making immigration checks mandatory for everyone arrested regardless of their nationality, skin color or language, we are removing racial profiling from the equation.”
Maybe not mirror exactly but it gave me a chance to use the headline the way I did.
