Please join us along with hundreds of Howard County residents in support of CB9-2017 bill.  This bill would make it illegal for local police officers or other government officials to demand anyone’s immigration status without cause. Without this bill, police could profile people by race, ethnicity or religion, can arrest persons who do not carry a US Passport on their body while in public and are required to furnish information to Federal authorities for no cause.

A message from Howard County Council member Calvin Ball

I hope that you had a wonderful holiday. First, I would like to thank you for your commitment to the community through your work with the Islamic Leadership Institute of America, and always making sure to demonstrate leadership in any opportunity that is presented to you in making sure that Howard County is the best for everyone.

Last week, Councilwoman Terrasa and I sent the attached letters to the leadership of HCC and HCPSS requesting them to consider implementing sanctuary policies. In addition, we pre-filed Council Bill 9, to make Howard County a sanctuary county.

To lend your support and voice to our legislative process, below are important dates so you can follow along:

  • Monday, February 6, 2017 at 7pm: Legislative Session (Council takes action on CB 9)

I look forward to continuing to work with you in order to promote the best for everyone in Howard County. I hope you have a very happy holiday and I will be in touch soon!

All the Best,

Dr. Calvin Ball
