ATL Mayor Bottoms Says NO To ICE Detainees & Hip Hop Supports!
According to the AJC (Atlanta Journal Constitution):
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Wednesday signed an executive order blocking the city jail from housing more federal detainees facing deportation, citing her objections to the separation of immigrant families on the southwest border.
The Democratic mayor announced her decision just minutes after President Donald Trump signed his own executive order reversing his administration’s controversial policy in favor of detaining families together during their immigration proceedings.
It was unclear late Wednesday how Trump’s move would affect Atlanta’s decision.
“The inhumane action of family separation demands that Atlanta act now,” Bottoms said in a statement. “On behalf of the people of Atlanta, I am calling upon the Trump Administration and Congress to enact humane and comprehensive measures that address our broken immigration system.”
