Mike Rawlings on Immigration



Enforce federal immigration statutes

Q: What should the city or the police department do, if anything, to address the issue of illegal immigration?

A: Immigration and the laws pertaining to it are federal issues. The Courts have confirmed this. We must ensure we enforce the federal statutes. And then we must turn to providing our citizens the basic services they need and the safety they deserve.
