The city council in Lansing, Mich. voted Wednesday to rescind its decision to deem itself a "sanctuary" city for illegal immigrants after concerns from the businesses that the status would draw unwelcome attention to the city.
The term "sanctuary city" generally refers to jurisdictions that do not cooperate with U.S. immigration officials. Under Lansing city policy, police don't ask for people's immigration status, except as required by U.S. or Michigan law or a court order.

Lansing City Council, it’s time to get your mind right!
This is a good start.
This should serve as a clear warning to Grand Rapids to stay away from trying to put on that Sanctuary City hat.
Believe me, they sooooooo want to try.
Lansing is blessed with a truly stupid mayor...
Money, money, money.
I don’t believe this ,,,, They’ve just gone stealth and still support the sanctuary policy under cover . Only time will tell if they are truley cooperating with law enforcement .
Sanctuary is a word defining an aspect of religion. Because our U.S. Constitution limits the ability of the government to establish any state religion, a ‘sanctuary city’ is an oxymoron written by imbeciles for idiots to read.
