Traverse City Adhoc Committee faces proper and righteous indignation over direction toward sanctuary status.
Considering a sanctuary city policy that ties the hands of local law enforcement, an adhoc committee of the Traverse City Human Rights Commission (the most concentrated batch of lefties and progressive lunatics in the north) held a public meeting at the Grand Traverse County building yesterday. The meeting was met with (perhaps unexpectedly intense) opposition to the idea of a sanctuary policy from residents in, and out of Traverse City proper.
Outside the county building a couple hundred protesters gathered prior to the meeting to let the HRC know where they stand on the issue. Many had apparently never been moved to protest till this point, and others were regular guardians of good government, and our constitution.
By the time it began, the meeting had to be moved to the larger County chambers venue because of the sheer number of people who showed. The ratio of folks opposing the ‘sanctuary’ nonsense was about 10:1 to those who demonstrated support.
Interestingly, there were those who work with the migrant community as well who were in opposition to the sanctuary policy, because they feared increased ICE activity in the region as a result. Even those who carried the signs protesting the protesters of this may have had some second thoughts after the commenting was finished.
Misunderstanding the difference between migrants and illegal aliens is apparently too easy.
The HRC will make a recommendation to the Traverse City Commission, which will then vote on whether to advocate lawlessness, and neuter it’s police force fully.
Stay tuned for updates.
