City Hall Showdown

A planned veto by Springfield  Mayor Domenic Sarno of an ordinance to make the city a "welcoming  community" to immigrants is drawing a response from the City Council.   

The ordinance, which would ban city officials from inquiring about  someone's immigration status unless it's required, could be approved at  next Monday's meeting.  

Council President Orlando Ramos spoke out  yesterday regarding Sarno's planned veto, saying the mayor holds a  constant contempt for diversity and immigrants.  

Sarno responded by  saying the opposite is true, and that he has always been a supporter of  legal immigration.

In an earlier vote, the measure passed on a 12-0 vote making it veto proof.
