OKC mayor denounces sanctuary city label

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO)- Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett says he does not believe in the label of sanctuary cities.

“Certainly, don't think it's being exercised in any broadly different way from one city to another.  That definition remains out of reach.  The practicality of delivering safe streets and neighborhoods remains.  (Are you concerned about the threat they could withhold federal funds from cities like yours?) I think DHS is in alignment with what mayors are doing across the country," said Cornett.

Cornett is the head of the US Conference of Mayors. He was among the mayors and chiefs of police who met with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly yesterday in Washington.
