Asheville Civil Liberties Resolution
Asheville is a step closer to becoming a "sanctuary city."
On Tuesday, Asheville City Council passed a civil liberties resolution. A "sanctuary city" means local police don't enforce federal immigration laws.
The resolution is the brainchild of Councilman Cecil Bothwell. He has been working on getting a resolution passed for several years. Bothwell says his next step is to pass a civil liberties ordiance.
