Chandler is frequently labeled a sanctuary city along with Phoenix. But is it really? Phoenix has an ordinance in place stating that police officers may not report illegal immigrants to I.C.E. for small violations such as traffic offenses or cite-and-release misdemeanors. Chandler has no such written policy. The definition of a sanctuary city can include a city that has no written policy, but only if its actions reflect the behavior of a sanctuary city. Recently, I.C.E. increased its responses to calls from local police around the Valley, no longer ignoring illegal immigrants arrested for most crimes. More illegal immigrants are being turned over to I.C.E. in the Valley, even in Phoenix. Over 6,000 illegal immigrants were arrested in the Valley within the past year, twice as many as the year before. It might be time to take Chandler off the sanctuary list. I’d be curious to hear if others disagree.
