Tucson Voters Vote Down ‘Sanctuary City’ Proposal

In Tuesday’s elections, the city of Tucson, Arizona voted against a proposition that would have made it the first “sanctuary city” in Arizona, as local outlet KGUN reports.

Prop 205 would have made Tucson a safe haven for illegal aliens, where local authorities would not be required to cooperate with ICE and other federal officials in the detaining of illegals. It was sponsored by the left-wing group “Tucson Families Free and Together.”

On Tuesday, it was defeated by just over 71 percent of Tucson voters. It was opposed during the campaign by virtually all of the city’s authority figures, including the Pima County Sheriff, the city council, and Mayor Jonathan Rothschild (D-Ariz.).
