Decorah, Iowa – The Decorah City Council has approved a statement of solidarity with Muslims. The action came at the council’s meeting on Monday night.

Republicans in the state legislature have drafted bills to penalize cities and counties in Iowa that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws or detain undocumented immigrants in local jails until they’re picked up by federal authorities.
