Mar 28 2017 West Palm Beach Becomes A Welcoming City For Immigrants

The City of West Palm Beach is now a "Welcoming city." The City Commission passed the resolution Monday evening. Several citizens came out to see the resolution pass and voice their opinion. “I am very excited that the city of West Palm Beach is taking a chance for the immigrant community,” said Resident Alien, Fabiola Franco.

The new designation means the city workers will not ask to see anyone's immigration paperwork unless they are forced to by Federal or state law, however not everyone is on board. “When there is a problem with a criminal or an illegal alien, if ICE wants West Palm Beach to work with them, West Palm beach needs to do so,” said West Palm Beach Resident, Jane Justice.

The City Commission unanimously passed the resolution, however some still want more. “I am concerned that it is not enough, the immigrant community is under attack and more has to be done to protect the immigrant community,” said Franco.
