Howard Co. Council Approves Decision To Become Immigrant ‘Sanctuary’ (Video)

COLUMBIA, Md. (WJZ) — Howard County Council has approved a controversial sanctuary county bill in a 3-2 vote. The bill will now go to County Executive Allan Kittleman. However, Kittleman has already said that he will veto any such bill.

“We are trying to find a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist,” he says.

Under the sanctuary bill police could not ask about someone’s immigration status or work with federal agents to get information about it.

People rallied on both sides of the issue of whether or not Howard County will be a “Sanctuary County.”
