Recently, Lansing Mayor Virg Bernaro hosted a community dialogue and planning session with local advocates, educators, and leaders from the faith based community about President Trump's executive orders regarding immigrants and refugees.

Mayor Bernaro stands with the thousands of immigrants and refugees that have resettled in Lansing over the decades.  Lansing, like America, was built by immigrants from all over the world, who came to this country seeking their own version of the American Dream.

Bernaro also said, "I condemn in the strongest possible terms the President's heavy handed, inhumane ban on refugees from Muslim countries that instantly tore apart families, left children stranded in airports here and abroad, and continues to disrupt international cultural, educational, economic and scientific exchanges."

"These actions are a clear violation of the U.S. Constitution and the very principles that define the moral character of our nation."  Here's moire from WILX-TV 10.
