On Wednesday Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms signed an executive order which will prohibit city jails from accepting new detainees of the U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency. The move comes after President Trump ordered children be separated from their parents after being caught trying to cross the US-Mexico boarder.

People around the country have been outraged by the presidents decision and Mayor’s have been taking action to push back, including Mayor Bottoms.
