A fresh "intake" of asylum seekers were delivered to us by ICE this afternoon and four unusual visitors, local police officers, stopped by. They were big and could have been an intimidating presence to asylum seekers who have been held in detention by people wearing uniforms, but they greeted our guests with reassuring smiles. One thanked me for the work I'm doing and then stayed to provide security in the parking lot. It made me think of the administration's "threat" to send asylum seekers to sanctuary cities. It's a laughable empty threat since I'm sure sanctuary cities would welcome these refugees, as Tucson has welcomed them.
