Mayor Marty Walsh of Boston declared Boston’s City Hall a “safe space” for anyone who felt “threatened or vulnerable” by President Trump’s executive orders.

Walsh’s statement came in response to Trump’s executive actions that directed agencies to strip funding from cities that harbor illegal immigrants.

CNN quoted Walsh as saying: “To anyone who feels threatened today, or vulnerable, you are safe in Boston… If necessary, we will use City Hall itself to shelter and protect anyone who’s targeted unjustly. They can use my office, they can use any office in this building. They’ll be able to use this building as a safe space.”
