Board Of Supervisors Resolution Defies Trump Funding Threat, Reaffirms Sanctuary City

Following a gathering on Monday, which brought together Mayor Lee, the Board of Supervisors, SFPD officials and others to reaffirm San Francisco's status as a sanctuary city, the Board of Supervisors passed a strongly worded resolution in response to the election of Donald Trump.

Introduced by newly reelected Board President London Breed, the resolution touches on Black Lives Matter and climate change ("not a hoax"), affirms LGBTQ and women's rights, and defies Trump's threats to revoke federal funding for sanctuary cities.

The original version called Trump an "erratic, ill-informed racist and misogynist" and included a more direct resolution title, but was amended before full board approval.

Read on for the full "Board of Supervisors’ Response to the Election of Donald Trump."

Knee jerk politics based on beliefs held by those who insulate themselves from the truth.
