This past week, the Mansfield Town Council voted to adopt a policy in support of its undocumented residents. The policy, which reaffirms the current town policy, was drafted by councilman Ben Shaiken, and states, “It shall be the policy of the Town of Mansfield that all people are free and welcome to use the public services, including police, fire and EMS, without fear that they will be questioned about their immigration status or that services will be denied because of that status.”
