(Portland, OR) -- An initiative to repeal Oregon's sanctuary law is generating controversy. "OregonLive" reports that the law has been on the books for 31 years, and it prevents the use of state resources to find or arrest those in the country illegally. Causa Oregon director Andrea Williams says that it's all that stands in the way of turning "local police into another arm of Trump's deportation force." The group Oregonians for Immigration Reform says they have enough signatures to put the repeal effort before voters in November. However, the signatures still must be counted and verified by the Oregon Secretary of State's office.
