Kirkpatrick provided a report to the city council on the raid on Nov. 28. She came prepared with a PowerPoint presentation; the first slide was titled, "Integrity." "The issue of my integrity has been called into question," Kirkpatrick told the council. "My integrity is strong enough that it can withstand any attack to it and/or any examination of it."

Frustrated by OPD's actions, the council's Public Safety Committee was expected to take up a new resolution on Dec. 5, forbidding any cooperation with ICE, but the meeting was canceled due to a strike by city employees.
