Push to put Yakima’s immigration policy into ordinance
YAKIMA, Wash. -- Advocates want the city of Yakima's policy not to inquire about a person's immigration status to become a legally binding ordinance. The Yakima Herald-Republic reports they worry the existing policy could change in the future and say an ordinance will ensure that it won't. That argument has gained traction with the City Council, which last week passed a measure to begin crafting a draft ordinance.
