-Tucson Won’t Become A Sanctuary City-
The second largest city of Arizona has overturned the proposal of becoming a sanctuary city. If accepted, Proposition 205 would have brought restrictions on police officers in regards to enforcing immigration laws. City council has said that they already operate as a sanctuary city, and that the proposition would only limit their access to federal funds.

On October 21, Apache County Sheriff’s Office received a call regarding animal cruelty in a house in Concho. When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered dead dogs, rabbits and a goat. The only living animal they found was also a goat, and he was feeding on the other deceased animals. The neighbor next door told the deputies that the house has been vacant for a while. After some research, police found the new address of the person who is responsible for the killing of animals. Denise Blackwood has been arrested.
