Pennsylvania County Votes for ‘Non-Sanctuary’ Status to Protect Residents from Illegal Immigration

A non-sanctuary city — that’s what one county in Pennsylvania discussed at a Board of Supervisors meeting Wednesday night that disappointed some residents.

East Hempfield Township supervisors said the resolution they proposed would “protect residents and businesses located within the township from illegal immigration.” However, some residents disagreed, arguing that some of the language used in the resolution was unnecessary.

After an edit was made, the Board of Supervisors passed the resolution in a 3-2 vote. So, what was the edit? It was to scratch out anywhere in the resolution that says “sanctuary city.”
