Lessenberry on Lansing's sanctuary city status and the ongoing funding battle for Fraser sinkhole

Apr 5, 2017

Lansing City Council officially designated itself a "sanctuary city." That move follows the Ann Arbor City Council's decision to not have police or city employees ask people about their immigration status. The Trump administration says "sanctuary cities" could lose their federal funding. Morning Edition host Doug Tribou and senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry talk about whether that would impact the two communities.

They also talk about a new law shielding bids for government contracts from public records requests, Flint Mayor Karen Weaver's problems that are unrelated to the city's water crisis, the battle over funding for the sinkhole in Fraser and the Tigers Opening Day win.
