Harp Orders New Haven A Sanctuary City
The mayor of New Haven, Connecticut has issued an executive order that — unofficially — makes it a sanctuary city.
Harp introduced the order at a rally outside City Hall Wednesday organized by an immigrants’ rights group.
The order doesn’t officially make New Haven a sanctuary city — a community that limits immigration cooperation between local government and federal immigration and customs enforcement.
A proposed ordinance that would officially declare New Haven a sanctuary city is expected to come up at a municipal board meeting next month. Harp says she'll leave that decision to the board.
