Mesa will enforce 1070

We haven't said much about SB1070, instead letting it to be worked out on its own. For the most part, its a state and federal matter, but when it comes down to it, it will be the cities that uphold the law. To that end, Mayor Smith has stated that he will enforce the law.

Despite claims that somehow Mesa is a "sanctuary city," Mayor Smith has said that he will follow the law, while ensuring that people's rights are protected. Its the right move and the appropriate message especially to those who fear an expansion of the Sheriff's sweeps.
