Attendees at PPU Debate Narrowly Vote in Favor of Sanctuary Cities

Thursday, November 3, 2022 - 4:30pm

The debaters arguing for the continued existence of sanctuary cities carried the day at the Penn Political Union on Wednesday, November 2, but only narrowly. Around 20 attendees listened to the arguments on both sides. According to PPU External Vice President Matteo Akbarpour, "The vote was very tight. It became a debate focused on political theory, with both sides giving convincing arguments related to the constitutionality of the issue."
