Syrian immigrant mayor won’t allow his town to be a sanctuary city
Mayor Michael Ghassali of Montvale, New Jersey has stated that his town will not play host to any illegal immigrants.
This is especially interesting, as Ghassali himself is a Syrian immigrant whose family had fled Aleppo in 1980, just before the Siege of Aleppo that would leave hundreds dead.
“I will not be signing any executive orders that will ask our employees to defy federal laws. A mayor should not be advocating the defiance of federal laws,” said Ghassali in a Facebook post just last week.
“Montvale is not a Sanctuary City under this administration,” he added.
