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"?

It's an ethical and legal battle over immigration that has put the welcoming city of Seattle in a most unwelcome position.

Jorge Baron, Exec. Director, NW Immigrant Rights Project
Lorena González, Seattle City Council
Ira Mehlman, Media Director, FAIR
