Sanctuary city

Sanctuary city?

I recently learned that we were a sanctuary city. I never saw this come up on a ballot or any meeting for public input.

As citizens we cannot remove a vehicle from parking in front of our homes or ask persons, living under unsanitary conditions, and/or using drugs and not disposing of needles properly, to leave our parks. This is what being a sanctuary city means. I clean up after my dogs and find it abhorrent that there are humans that choose to live amidst their droppings.

Would one of my noble city representatives please let me know how this came about without public input.
