An ordinance that bans profiling was approved Wednesday by the Detroit City Council. It prohibits police and city employees from asking about the immigration status of residents.
The council voted unanimously for the law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, dress, physical appearance and immigration status. Under the new law, police cannot ask people for their immigration papers unless it was related to a crime.
The upside? About half of the Detroit Tigers can rest easy now. The downside? Illegals are U-Hauling it up to Motown. This is sure to be a draw to bring business downtown. Great idea, guys.
