Stop Oregon Sanctuaries

Stop Oregon Sanctuaries - Ballot Measure 105

The 2018 Ballot Measure 105 was defeated. The defeat leaves in place an illegal alien sanctuary statute that undermines U.S. sovereignty and law, encourages illegal immigration to Oregon, and gives elected officials an excuse to release criminal aliens. To fight Measure 105, our opponents raised almost $8 million, compared to our $400,000. Our campaign, comprised of volunteers, fought well-staffed labor unions, liberal advocacy groups and self-described 'faith' groups. At every turn, newspaper editorial boards denigrated our arguments and praised our opponents positions.

Measure 105 was not about racial profiling, or about fear of the police, or about legal immigrants. It was about allowing state and local law enforcement officers to more easily work with federal immigration authorities in the removal of criminal illegal aliens from our communities.

From the Oregon Secretary of State

Since 1987, Oregon Revised Statute 181A.820 has kept Oregon's state and local law-enforcement agencies from offering their fullest cooperation to the U.S. authorities charged with identifying and detaining illegal aliens. In doing so, the law has effectively rendered Oregon a "sanctuary" state for foreigners here illegally.

Activists affiliated with Oregonians for Immigration Reform have filed Initiative Petition 22 with the Oregon Secretary of State's Elections Division. It has been accepted, and will place a measure onto the November 2018 statewide ballot that will give Oregonians the chance to repeal ORS 181A.820. It is called Ballot Measure 105.

Illegal aliens can and do harm the American citizens to whom Oregon owes its foremost responsibility. For this reason, enforcement of U.S. immigration law is central to the duties of Oregon's police departments and sheriff's offices. Vote YES on Ballot Measure 105 to repeal ORS 181A.820 -- and to free Oregon law enforcement to better protect Oregonians from criminal aliens.
