Sanctuary city update --

Anchorage Daily News has an article this morning about a proposed Assembly action to ask traffic violators their citizenship. Among many things, it answeres the question of how HJR22 of 2003 affects the issue...

Some cities, such as Chicago, ban police from asking people if they are legal U.S. citizens, according to The Associated Press. Anchorage has no such rule, Hasquet said.

"We enforce any law that we have the opportunity to enforce," he said.
