UPDATE: I asked First Selectman Tetreau (D) Fairfield to comment, he said: “Mayor Ganim has not reached out to me about his move to make Bridgeport a Sanctuary city. He hasn’t asked for my support or Fairfield’s support. I would like to learn more about his plans for Bridgeport. If he has questions on what is happening in Fairfield on any topic, I would be glad to take his call. I don’t follow him on Twitter so that may not be the best way to communicate.”
#Bridgeport Connecticut– Mayor Joe Ganim slipped into Fairfield’s train station and to Twitter calling for the fellow democratic town to become a sanctuary town. Yesterday the mayor and city council members got an earful during the city council meeting proposing Bridgeport to become a Sanctuary City. According to Wikipedia a sanctuary city “is a municipality that has adopted a policy of protecting unauthorized immigrants by not prosecuting them for violating federal immigration laws and by ensuring that all residents have access to city services, regardless of immigration status”. Sources say Mayor Ganim was upset with out of town/Fairfield resident Ann McCarthy leading the charge in Bridgeport.
