Statement from City Attorney Barbara J. Parker on U.S. Department of Justice Compliance Letter

Oakland, CA — City Attorney Barbara J. Parker made the following statement regarding the Department of Justice grant compliance letter received today:

“We are reviewing the letter from the Department of Justice. Oakland is proud to be a sanctuary city and we are in compliance with federal immigration law. Our sanctuary city policy encourages the community to work with police and helps law enforcement to investigate and prevent crimes in our city. We will continue to focus our resources on fighting crime, rather than tearing apart Oakland families and making our city less safe.  We will respond to the letter at the appropriate time.”
