Senator declares office a sanctuary to help those facing adversity
A state senator is looking to declare his office a "sanctuary district."
Sen. Jesse Hamilton says he is designating his office a place where people facing challenges to their immigration status can seek refuge and legal guidance.
"You don't have to be afraid to ask for legal help," Hamilton says. "Some people are afraid that by going to get help they may be deported."
Some community members tell News 12 that while they have been frustrated with the actions coming from the White House, they are grateful local leaders are standing up for them.
