Mayor Won't Make Her City A Sanctuary

Easthampton Mayor Karen Cadieux isn't budging on a request to make the municipality a  sanctuary city. 

Cadieux says she won't issue an executive order on the  matter despite a petition with over seven-hundred signatures being  presented to the City Council last week. 

Council members discussed  making Easthampton a safe haven for undocumented immigrants at length  last winter, but the conversation didn't make it past a committee.  

Cadieux says it would be insulting for her to order her police  department to not cooperate with federal immigration agents, because  that's already their policy.
