Toronto police urged to stop immigration 'status checks'

There's a disconnect here.

Toronto pays for a police service but does not make the laws (or at least the major laws) that the police must follow.

So calling Toronto a Sanctuary City does nothing. It's as if Toronto said "no drug prosecutions of any sort"; good idea or bad it's not within the City's power to decide.

This is very strange that the Toronto Police would do such immigration checks, they have NO authority to do so. Is this a leaking phenomena coming from the USA like Arizona with Sheriff Arpaio who believes in some kind of mission to cleanse society of illegals. Hopefully the Police Chief and or the Mayor will call the Police to order.
