The Mayor supports a criminal illegal alien hiding from the law and who receives Portland taxpayer funds.
Mayor Charlie Hales’ statement is below.
Here’s the mayor’s statement. I’ll be parsing it on KXL today.
“Francisco Aguirre has been a community leader in Portland and an important voice on issues of equity and immigrant rights.
Our community benefits from the work done by Francisco and by the Voz Workers Rights Education Project.
Mayors across the nation are calling on Congress to address comprehensive immigration reform.
And while immigration is a federal issue, I believe Francisco should remain in the United States, and in Portland, until his case can reach a humane conclusion.” – Mayor Charlie Hales
