Takoma Park - Am Immigrant Sanctuary

Unlike many of the local cities in surrounding areas, Takoma Park remains firm on their immigration policies: "Welcome." This past week the Town Council voted once again to maintain their "sanctuary" status for illegal immigrants. Not only does this vote maintain their laws against enforcing federal immigration policies but illegals are also allowed to vote in local elections.

Wow. That is a remarkable policy. I hope it has positive results. I have always felt that the Hispanic immigrant community is a positive influence on the area and our local economy. And, again, it proves that Takoma Park really is the Berkeley of the East.

Immigrants can vote and No Nukes! Yay!
