    Grant request for police officer sparks immigration debate in Hamburg

    Grant request for police officer sparks immigration debate in Hamburg

    Hamburg, apparently, has no plans to become a sanctuary community, but the nation's immigration debate came to the town this week when the Town Board took up a routine application for a federal grant that would help pay for a new police officer.

    Included in the application was a clause requiring the town to adhere to the federal statute widely seen as prohibiting sanctuary communities. The statute prohibits state and local governments from enacting policies that limit communication with federal officials about the immigration status of individuals.

    Supervisor Steven Walters said the town has always enforced immigration laws as they are written by the federal code.

    "It won't create any difference in our police department," he said. "The federal government now requires it as part of grant applications, I'm sure in response to several cities and several communities declaring themselves sanctuary cities."

    Who pays for that officer after the grant is spent?

    I'm sure that when the grant expires the police officer won't loose his job. That make the officer's salary the burden of the Hamburg taxpayers.
    What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

    All civil servents are a burden to the tax payers.
    the more they get paid the greater the burden.
