Advocacy groups holding sanctuary city rally in New Haven

News

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Immigration advocacy groups are planning a rally with members of the New Haven Board of Alders in hopes of passing a new ordinance to make New Haven a sanctuary city.

Unidad Latina en Accion, New Haven Rising and others will hold the event outside City Hall on Wednesday.

They hope to expand on a decade-old general order related to immigration enforcement for police to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Arrest” to also include city employees.

So far, 29 New Haven community groups have pledged support and organizers have met with 23 aldermen to enlist their backing for the ordinance.

Mayor Toni Harp has met with organizers and said she wants to work with them, but has not confirmed if she will attend the late afternoon rally.
