A Virginia town may declare that it’s not a sanctuary city

CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) – One of Virginia’s largest cities could officially declare that it’s not a “sanctuary city” for immigrants.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that city officials in Chesapeake are considering drafting a resolution. City Councilman Robert Ike says it would send a message to undocumented workers.

Others say it’s unnecessary and could send the wrong message to immigrant communities.

Sanctuary cities limit their cooperation with the federal government’s enforcement of immigration laws.
