What is the Safe and Welcoming Ordinance?

A municipal ID is a form of photo identification issued by a city or county government. It can be used to prove a person’s identity within the county limits and to access services which may include enrolling children in school, opening bank accounts, picking up prescriptions, and accessing health care. 


An ICE non-compliance resolution affirms that local law enforcement will not take on front-line immigration enforcement. This part of the ordinance would clarify that the local government and its departments would not participate in reporting or investigating immigration status.
