Gary attempts to dismiss lawsuit against its 'welcoming city' ordinance

By Fatima Hussein

The city of Gary has enlisted the help of Georgetown's law school to help defend its “welcoming city” ordinance from a lawsuit that is part of a nationwide effort to roll back so-called sanctuary city policies.

Georgetown Law’s Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection and the Oakland-based Public Rights Project will represent the city and defend its ordinance. The organizations submitted a 54-page brief in federal court Wednesday afternoon seeking summary judgment against the lawsuit.
