Pass a Welcoming City ordinance that would separate Redmond police from federal deportation efforts and protect city residents from being turned over to ICE.
Why is this important?
Redmond is a hugely diverse city that benefits enormously from its immigrant population. Recent events can lead to huge swaths of our population feeling unsafe. As a school counselor, I have met with many students who are already feeling fear and shame due to recent events. A Welcoming City ordinance would send a clear message to them that we have their backs.
