Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey announced this week that mandatory placards detailing immigrants’ rights will be displayed in police squad cars, and now some officers are pushing back.
The signs will be in both English and Spanish, and will be displayed in all of the city’s squad cars.
The article goes on to state the following:
“Right now, cities have to step up and do what our federal administration and Congress won’t,” Frey said at a press conference Wednesday. “We will not let this lack of compassion at the highest levels of our government prevent us from doing what is right for our alien communities here in Minneapolis.”
“They will make it clear that you don’t have to answer questions about where you were born, your immigration status, whether you are a citizen and that you have the right to remain silent,” he explained.
Lt. Bob Kroll, president of the Police Officers Federation of Minneapolis, said on “Fox & Friends First” Friday that this is an example of city leaders’ “extreme, left-wing politics.”
