A nice, little, local suburban enclave in Kansas continues pushing back against conservatives and the "build the wall" MAGA agenda in a big way.
Remember, last year around this time Roeland Park pushed a controversial "safe & welcoming" ordinance that hoped to limit LA MIGRA in their part of town.
This week, limits on federal enforcement ramped up.

"The ordinance says city officials aren’t obligated to use any funds or resources to help federal immigration agencies, such as the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or to share information regarding an individual’s immigration status. It also says the Roeland Park Police Department shouldn’t provide support to ICE for immigration enforcement, unless there is a “specific threat to public safety or crime in progress.”
"Roeland Park appears to be the second city in Kansas to embrace an ordinance like this. The American Civil Liberties Union of Kansas has encouraged city and county governments statewide to adopt similar policies to build trust among immigrant community members.
"Under the ordinance passed Monday, police are also required to alert Roeland Park residents of any planned activity by federal immigration enforcement agencies within 48 hours, except in cases where a crime is occurring."
