Kenney Insists Philly Won’t Change Immigration Policies
In fact, he would prefer to retire the term “sanctuary city”.
“First of all, we’ve changed the name from ‘sanctuary city’ to ‘the Fourth Amendment city,’” Kenney told Julia Terruso of the Inquirer. “We respect and live up to the Fourth Amendment, which means you can’t be held against your will without a warrant from the court signed by a judge. So, yeah, we will continue to be a Fourth Amendment city abiding by the Constitution.”
Trump has pledged to cancel all federal funding that employ this technique.
“We’ll cross that bridge when we come to it and we’ll see how it goes and we’ll try to figure something out,” Kenney responded when asked about Trump’s promise.
While the Republican nominee won the state with 48.76%, he received just 15.49% in Philadelphia County.
