‘FREEDOM CITY’: Austin, Texas Takes ‘SANCTUARY STATUS’ to the NEXT LEVEL
The liberal bastion of Austin, Texas took its fight against the state government and Trump administration to the next level this month, passing new legislation that declared the left-wing enclave the nation’s first ‘Freedom City.’
According to the Los Angeles Times, the new guidelines for local law enforcement restrict police from even questioning individuals about their immigration status and prevents them from arresting possible migrants for “non-violent crimes.”
“One of the new city resolutions requires officers who question immigrants about status to also say that their questions about immigration need not be answered.
