Letter-to-Editor
Resident disagrees with City Councillors
Dear Editor,
At the April 3, 2017, City
Council meeting Councillor
George Rotondo requested
that the “City Council go on
record against any effort to
makeMassachusetts a sanctu-
ary state. Further that a copy of
this vote be presented with a
letter to our State delegation
stating such.”
Councillor Rotondo sup-
ports a wall paid by taxpay-
ers and the beliefs of hate and
separation of the current Pres-
ident. As a Revere resident
these efforts of the City Coun-
cil, especially Councillor Ro-
tondo, do not represent me
and fellow residents of Revere.
I applaud the efforts of Sen-
ator Jamie Eldridge of Acton
and Representative JuanaMa-
tias of Lawrence in sponsor-
ing the Massachusetts Safe
Communities Act, introduced
in both the House and Sen-
ate. It would make Massachu-
setts the fifth sanctuary state,
joining California, Colorado,
Connecticut, and New Mexi-
co. The Safe Communities Act
would ensure state funds are
not used to enforce federal im-
migration policy and prevent
state law enforcement from
collaborating with Federal im-
migration agencies.
I am furious that it flies in
the face of common sense of
Councillor Rotondonot topro-
tect our city, where in the 2010
census and updated num-
bers from American Commu-
nity Survey from 2011-2015,
34.9% of Revere residents are
foreign born.
Immigration and deporta-
tion is not an individual issue,
it impacts families. To label im-
migrants as criminals is xeno-
phobic and racist. At thismeet-
ing Councillor Zambuto said
we “multiply like cockroach-
es.” This whether said in the
context of criminals or not, is
beyond racist. Having heard
this froma local electedofficial
makesme feel less of a person,
and no one, no one, should
have to feel this way.
To these Councillors, the
commentary behind a sanc-
tuary state does not lack valid-
ity. The validity is here you are
not listening. Sanctuary state
or city does not mean harbor-
ing criminals. Revere, not so
far from Boston, which bene-
fits fromthe proximity inmany
ways, Boston’s Mayor Marty
Walsh has said, “The threat of
cutting federal funding from
cities across the country that
aim to foster trusting rela-
tionships between their law
enforcement and the immi-
grant community is irrespon-
sible and destructive.”Revere’s
elected officials should take
the lead and join Mayor Marty
Walsh and former RevereMay-
or and current City Manager
Tom Ambrosino in protecting
all residents of the city.
By creating a division of “us”
and“them”we push this great
city into thedarknesswhile the
cities and towns surrounding
us continue to prosper with
immigrants standing side by
side and not in the shadows in
fear and certainly not as“cock-
roaches.”
