It is the responsibility of the federal government and every single state employee including every police dept. to round up and enforce the laws of this country. That means “everyone” should stop passing the buck and do a roundup of illegals and give them a water bottle at the border then asked at rifle point to get steppin !! Just the way they came in. Why do these state people try to say its the federal govt. job to enforce the immigration laws when they are walking over the states borders. Police are suppossed to enforce state and federal laws and so are our state leaders. This is frustrating. So if the state is not suppossed to support federal law then does that mean that police are not supposed to protect the rights of citizens (those are federal laws adopted by the federal govt.).
Please be aware that Maine’s current governor, Paul LePage, rescinded the previous governor’s (John Baldacci) order preventing State workers from asking about mimigration status. http://www.pressherald.com/news/immigrant-status-rule-rescinded_2011-01-07.html.
Sorry to see you go. Thank you for all your time, energy and costs involved in providing fair and accurate reporting. I’m an activist in MD regarding illegals and i’ve been threatened, tires slashed and fearful of my family.. But i just can’t quit and try to keep identity quiet but too many know me.. Good luck in your future endeavers..
You can added Concord, California to list of sanctuary cities. They have a long history of it and local pd have a hands off policy.

Hope you’re having a great week! I’m in the midst of an article (topic is attempted suicide and addiction) and came across your site while researching. Most importantly, I want to thank you for the work that goes into the maintenance of your site – I know it’s a lot of work. And usually the work is thankless, so please know I appreciate it!
A quick heads up that you’re linking (on this page: http://www.sanctuarycities.info/federal_state_city_governments.htm) to the homepage of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, which is no longer active: http://www.os.dhhs.gov/
It’s still out there – it has just changed locations (and with no redirect, which is unfortunate). The new location is: http://www.hhs.gov/
Just curious — do you have any resources you might recommend on my topic? There is a lot out there, but it can be tough to locate quality information. I would be happy to send my article to you once it’s finished, if you’re interested (no pressure, though!).
Considering what you’re currently linking to, and considering how important it is to have access to help, I wondered whether you might be interested in adding another resource to your site? The guide below provides data about addiction, treatment, and rehab centers for each state in the U.S.
