Mountain View Strengthens Support for Immigrant and Minority Families

10/26/17 At their October 24, 2017 meeting, Mountain View City Councilmembers unanimously supported additional policy language to strengthen a longstanding citywide commitment to preserving diversity and providing security for immigrant families in our community. The newly adopted language reinforces that the City is prohibited from contributing to identity based registries; detaining, relocating or interning individuals on the basis of religion, national origin or ethnicity; and will not enforce federal civil immigration laws. These additions further the City Council’s major goal to “Promote Strategies to Protect Vulnerable Populations and Preserve the Socioeconomic and Cultural Diversity of the Community.”
