Lansing, MI Proudly Becomes Sanctuary City Only to Reverse it One Week Later
In Lansing, Michigan, a resolution was passed declaring the city a "sanctuary city." A week later? Apparently, the city was only kidding...
The Lansing City Council backed out of its decision to declare itself a sanctuary city Wednesday evening, holding a vote to rescind the barely week-old resolution. After hours of public comment, the council voted 5-2 to rescind the resolution containing a reference to sanctuary city passed April 3. Council member Jessica Yorko was not present for the vote.
Council member Kathie Dunbar, who was a main proponent of declaring Lansing a sanctuary city, was one of the members who voted against rescinding the resolution, joining council member Tina Houghton. She said she believed the resolution was well within legal bounds and should not have been changed.
But other members of the council were concerned adding "sanctuary city" to a resolution on immigration could negatively impact the city budget and could give people the wrong impression that the city of Lansing is offering protections it doesn't currently have.
Long story short? A leftist council member wanted to call Lansing a sanctuary city, just because "resist" and "Trump." The people who live there had a difference of opinion. Mainly not wanting their city to lose funding from the federal government, but also because they don't want to protect people who don't belong in the USA in their city. It's hard to blame these citizens, what with illegal immigrants getting their crime on with the same reckless abandon as tranny cheering at a Cher concert.
The city council wised up and decided that maybe, just maybe, flaunting that they were going to ignore the law might not be a good idea. And with good reason (see Jeff Sessions Puts Sanctuary Cities on Blast: Follow the Law or Lose Money and Minority Americans Blast Sanctuary Cities: “Illegal Immigration is Racist!”).
But methinks also for the illegal crime sprees. Especially against young girls. And no, it's not racist to point out some girls would rather not be raped by illegal immigrants. Read Rockville Superintendent: Parents Angry Over Illegal Alien Rape Case are RACIST!
