The Sanctuary City Contracting Ordinance will keep the money of Berkeley's residents from lining the pockets of companies that collaborate directly with the Trump administration's lawless and unconstitutional immigration policies.

The contracting ordinance will phase out gradually the use of vendors that supply ICE with information that helps them to better terrorize immigrant communities. Combined with similar actions by other Bay Area cities, the ordinance will send the message that it isn't good business to separate young children from their parents, violate asylum seekers constitutional rights and lock people up in private immigration detention facilities like Adelanto and Otay Mesa that don't conform to UN human rights standards.

Berkeley's money should not be spent on feeding the deportation pipeline when there are alternatives available and the contracting ordinance will make sure as little of our money as possible will be going to ICE data brokers.

The item is the first item on the action calendar and will likely be heard between 7:30pm and 9:00pm on the evening of February 26. The meeting begins at 6:00pm. DeportICE website.
