Controversy over cities that don't cooperate with federal immigration laws, municipalities known as "sanctuary cities," have been a hot topic recently after the murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco.

Over in Ann Arbor (who along with Detroit is one of Michigan's two "sanctuary cities") leaders have no problem with the policy and don't seem to plan on changing it any time soon judging by a recent MIRS quote.

"If you are asked to prove that you are legally here, you wouldn't like being here." 
- Ann Arbor City Councilmember Sabra BRIERE, a Democrat representing Ward 1, defending the city's sanctuary city policy.

  1. I like this place. I was here the other night, I've been there for about four or five hours and found the prices reasonable on all fronts and the staff to be so friendly. I would be the perfect person to have on an infomercial for these party venues if they ever had one.
