Monday, November 14, 2016

(Washington, DC) Today, Mayor Bowser issued the following statement reaffirming the District’s status as a sanctuary city:

"The values, laws, and policies of Washington, DC did not change on Election Day. We celebrate our diversity and respect all DC residents no matter their immigration status. We are a sanctuary city because we know that our neighborhoods are safer and stronger when no one is afraid to call on our government for help, and when our police can focus on protecting and serving."
