A “community harmony and safety” resolution endorsing a policy of non-interference with people who might be illegal aliens goes before the Garden Grove City Council when it meets on Tuesday night.
The proposed resolution, first raised in November by then-mayor Bao Nguyen, would denounce “any hateful rhetoric targeted against any person, group or community seeking to disrupt, divide, physically threaten or menacingly discriminate against any of them,” and goes on to put the city council on record a police policy of “not requiring officers to check, request and/or verbally obtain proof of legal status in the execution of their duties, unless a suspect’s legal status is directly related to the incident leading to law enforcement intervention.”
Consideration of the resolution would come less than a week after President Donald Trump’s inauguration, where he promised strong action against illegal immigration.
The council will meet it its regular session at 6 p.m. in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave. (at Euclid Street).
