NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The New Orleans City Council Thursday will consider a resolution today opposing President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration.

City leaders say New Orleans is not a sanctuary city.

But New Orleans police officers aren't supposed to question immigration status under the federal consent decree.

After Trump's order, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said the city follows federal laws and will continue to arrest and convict violent criminals regardless of their immigration status.
