(Portland, OR)  --  Mayor Ted Wheeler says Portland will remain a safe, welcoming city for all residents, regardless of immigration status.  Wheeler made the comment to KATU-2 yesterday following the U.S. Department of Justice's announcement of plans to crack down on sanctuary cities.  The Justice Department says it will no longer award grants to cities that fail to give ICE agents access to its jails.  Cities must also provide 48-hours notice before releasing an illegal immigrant from custody.  Portland Police Sergeant Pete Simpson tells KATU he doesn't believe the Portland Police Bureau receives any federal funding anyway.  A spokesman with the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office says their department is mostly funded by taxpayers and the general fund.
