Creating Inclusion for Our Undocumented Members of Our Community

As a County Commissioner, Loretta was proud to develop and lead on the Multnomah County’s “sanctuary county” ordinance. She recognizes that diverting badly needed local resources to enforce federal immigration policies is a poor use of our tax dollars and bad public policy. When undocumented residents fear they cannot go to local law enforcement or the county government, it creates real harm – making it harder to keep the community safe and for us to look out for the most vulnerable.
