City:

#MichiganForAll #WashtenawForAll
We need a strong showing of opposition to HB 4105 and HB 4334, which are currently in the Local Government Committee in the MI State House. These bills would:
-Prohibit sanctuary cities and counties and require local police officers to ask a person about their immigration status if they suspect that they might be an immigrant.
-Burden local governments and officials with additional costs, reporting requirements, and threats of litigation and penalties.
