Ask The Mayor


Mayor Hal Richards

Q. - I am seeing an increasingly amount of hispanics in the Great Cityof Terrell. Is Terrell considered a "santuary city"?

Answer - Thank you for your question.


As I understand it, there are some cities in the country that have declared themselves as sanctuary cities, meaning that they will not report to Federal authorities anyone suspected of being in the country illegally. This is not the policy of the City of Terrell.


As standard operating procedure, the Terrell Police Service seeks to identify anyone who has violated the law. If a person can not produce proper identification and leads an officer to suspect that he may not be in the country legally, then proper federal authorities are notified.


Under our constitution, responsibility for immigration rests with the Federal Government.



Hal Richards, Mayor
