Well, the election occurred yesterday, and this proposition was on the ballot.
Against - 79 percent. For - 21 percent.
A strong signal? Here's the big factor, this was a mayor and city council election.....without state officials or the Presidency on the ballot. So a lot of people just said it was not worth showing up. Who did show up? I would go and suggest that more than half of the voters were mostly over the age of 50. If this had been done in November 2020's election? I think it would have been closer to 50-50.
But Tucson has a unique situation in that a large amount of the population is 55 or older. Sanctuary status isn't exactly something that thrills that particular population.
In most cities, I suspect if you allowed public voting to occur....Sanctuary status would be voted down. The negative holding it back? It means you are holding the local police to a standard, and saying that that state or federal laws don't matter. It's a bad habit to start, and you can't be sure where it'd end.
