While City Council members sort through designating Bridgeport a sanctuary city that is opposed by Mayor Joe Ganim, two church leaders on the legislative body have differing views.
From CT Post reporter Brian Lockhart:
“The moral meaning of this far exceeds whether we’re going to lose some money,” said Councilman John Olson, a retired Congregational pastor. “And I don’t think we’ll lose a penny. I don’t think he (Trump) has legal grounds to do it.”
But Councilwoman Rev. Mary McBride Lee of the Pentecostal Church now opposes the sanctuary designation.
“The documented ones that are here, I’m all for that,” McBride Lee said. “The undocumented? Everyone should be here legally. Nobody wants to separate families, but you also have to abide by the law, too.”
