Conservative Republican US Senate Candidate Kelli Ward joined with conservative activists across Phoenix in demanding the City Council reject a petition to declare the state capital a “sanctuary city.” Letters to the Mayor and each member of the City Council declared her opposition to such an idea and reminded them that it is their duty to uphold the law – not break it.

Said Dr. Ward, “Turning Phoenix, our capital city, into a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants may impose unnecessary and overwhelming financial burdens on taxpayers. We must not implement any policy that promotes sanctuary to people in this state illegally.”

Ward continued, “Now more than ever, it is essential that local, state, and federal governments work together with local and federal law-enforcement to protect our fellow Americans and to guarantee that all of our laws are upheld, not selectively enforced or even ignored. We are a country of laws. Phoenix should be a shining example in America, not a place where law and order is put on the back burner.”

In October, Kelli announced that she will challenge Republican Senator Jeff Flake, one of President Trump’s biggest foes, in the 2018 primary election.
