Springfield City Council Says No To Sanctuary City

Springfield isn't changing its status  as a non-sanctuary city despite protesters calling for the change at a  City Council meeting on Monday.   

A resolution  considered by the council to ask that police not be required to do the  job of federal immigration officials did not pass.  

The protest  originated from a May Day rally in Springfield, which reportedly  featured hundreds of people and was one of several held in western  Massachusetts yesterday.  

Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno has previously  resisted calls for Springfield to become a sanctuary city.
