Fischer dodges Sanctuary


“Sanctuary really is a politicized discussion” and as such we are not going to address it. So say mayor Fischer and his speech writer, continuing to dodge the issue. Fisher offers platitudes, proclamations, personal stories and a focus on “inclusion, sustainability, education, career development and getting immigrants naturalized and on the way to citizenship”, but no sanctuary. Appears Fischer’s compassion and inclusion do not embrace sanctuary.

For those who fled violence and poverty, and are now productive contributors to our city, yet living in fear of deportation, sanctuary is much more than “a politicized discussion”. It should also mean more to Louisville’s leadership.
