Phoenix City Council members voted to protect the local police department from taking part in a federal immigration deportation force on Wednesday.

In a press release, the city council said it voted to “reject efforts by the Trump Administration to conscript Phoenix Police officers as part of a federal immigration deportation force.”

The Phoenix Police Department will also, according to the release, “modernize its policies to more clearly outline when officers can and cannot inquire about the immigration status of members of the public, particularly to protect crime victims, witnesses and juveniles on school campuses.”
