Richmond and Berkeley Refer Sanctuary City Ordinances

On MayDay, Richmond and Berkeley joined Alameda as cities developing Sanctuary City Contracting Ordinances to cut municipal ties to ICE data brokers and vendors in any extreme vetting program.

Richmond’s law is being sponsored by Councilperson Jovanka Beckes, a candidate for Assembly District 15 rep, and Ada Recinos and will return for a final vote on the 15th of May.

Berkeley’s law is being sponsored by Councilmembers Kriss Worthington, Kate Harrison and Cheryl Davila and will return for a full Council vote after a review by the City’s Peace and Justice subcommittee.

Both votes were unanimous.
