San Francisco’s police chief, sheriff, and mayor have announced that they will not enforce President Trump’s executive order on immigration.

Police Chief William Scott, Sheriff Vicki Hennessy, and Mayor Ed Lee sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security Monday, informing them that the city has no intention of complying with the order.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Scott, Hennessy and Lee said: “San Francisco’s public safety agencies will not enforce federal immigration law.” And they stressed that the city will not “participate in any agreements” contained in Trump’s executive orders on immigration, even though Trump’s orders “empower State and local law enforcement agencies across the country to perform the functions of an immigration officer in the interior of the United States to the maximum extent permitted by law.”

Scott, Hennessy, and Lee said their refusal to comply “is in the interest of public safety.” Their rationale is that enforcing the orders would harm relationships between law enforcement and the residents of San Francisco.
