Portland To Remain "Sanctuary City"

(Portland, OR)  --  The mayor of Portland says the city will remain a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants.  Mayor Ted Wheeler says that means that Portland police have been asked not to work with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to help deport undocumented immigrants.  Wheeler and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray made similar declarations yesterday, after President Donald Trump signed an executive order that says sanctuary cities will be subject to having federal funding cut off.  Wheeler's office says Portland's status as a sanctuary city is important, even if it means losing federal money.
