Syracuse, NY (CNY Central) The immigration debate nationwide has become a topic of discussion among some residents in the city of Syracuse.
Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner wrote a letter to the president, offering the city as a harbor for some illegal immigrant children.
If approved, a convent in the city that used to house St. Francis Sisters of Neumann Communities would shelter illegal immigrants as young as six years old.
It would become the fourth facility of its kind in the United States.
On Thursday, protestors on both sides of the immigration debate gathered at the convent, voicing their opinions on the site's fate.
