Majority wants more protection from a Lansing sanctuary city proposal

The Lansing City Council voted to table a resolution that would reaffirm Lansing’s status as welcoming city to immigrants and refugees on Feb.13. The resolution was scrapped not because the council didn’t want to pass legislation, but largely due to public demand for more protection under the proposition. See below for the full proposal. The meeting drew a crowd so large that a viewing area was set up in the lobby to accommodate more people. “I’ve been on the council for a year and in that time I have never seen a crowd at a council meeting that large,” said Council Member Kathie Dunbar.
