POLL: Do you support Seattle's position as a sanctuary city?

Seattle city leaders are pushing back against President Trump's executive orders regarding immigrants and refugees. What does it mean to be a "sanctuary city"? Why are Seattle and dozens of other jurisdictions risking losing millions in federal dollars over this? How will immigrants, both documented and otherwise, be impacted by the new rules? It's an ethical and legal battle over immigration that has put the welcoming city of Seattle in a most unwelcome position.
