Professors penned an open letter to City Council in support of a Sanctuary City policy

Claire Delisle, Maritza Felices-Luna, Sandra Lehalle, David Moffette and Baljit Nagra - all criminology professors who work on immigration, borders, and statelessness - signed an open letter to City Council on the need for a sanctuary city policy. In this letter signed by 40 Ottawa academics doing research in these fields, they argue that there is evidence that such a policy is needed and call for Council to come back on their decision not to move forward on this issue.
