Residents of Chico were denied making the city a sanctuary at the council meeting Feb. 21.

People ranging from doctors to Chico State students came to support this resolution.

“I would like the city as a whole to be a reflection of the campus’s diverse community,” said attendee Daniel Lopez when he addressed the council.

The council voted as to whether or not the resolution should be added to the next meeting’s agenda for discussion.

The resolution was rejected in a 4 to 3 vote.
