Mayor Phil Gordon along with the City Manager and City Council of Phoenix, Arizona refuses to take responsibility for the death of a Phoenix Police officer. Instead, Phil Gordon blames the Federal Government for not doing their job! Mayor Phil Gordon was well aware of what the potential for violence on the streets of Phoenix was and is but what is more important to this mayor is collecting his city sales taxes while the citizens of his town are being killed and raped and robbed! Citizens have written, called, rallied while having meetings inviting the mayor to town meetings to stop sanctuary orders. Mayor Gordon never appeared! Phoenix Mayors policy Officers will not stop persons for the sole purpose of determining immigration status. Officers will not arrest a person when the only violation is an infraction of federal immigration law. Officers will not contact ICE/Border Patrol for the sole purpose of interpreting. Officers will not notify ICE/Border Patrol of undocumented persons under the following conditions: ? When the contacted person is a victim and/or witness of a crime ? When contacted during a family disturbance ? The enforcement of minor traffic offenses ? When the person(s) is/are seeking medical treatment If an undocumented person is arrested, the decision to notify ICE will be based on the following criteria: ? If the offense is a minor traffic violation, ICE will not be notified. (Felony DUI offenders will be turned over to ICE when feasible.) ? If the offense is a misdemeanor and the person meets the cite-and-release criteria, an ATTC may be issued. ? ICE will not be notified by the Phoenix Police Department if the person is released. ? If the person will be released from police custody (not booked) pending further investigation, ICE will not be notified. I just thought as an update to Shane's story I would start a different thread on this issue and give you all some idea of what is really going on here. On a side note. Phil Gordon has been tapped by the local democratic party to chair and set immigration reform policy and make recommendations to the national party.
