A Meeting to Discuss Policy

On Tuesday, March 5, ICE agents attempted to detain two people at the corner of Warren and Fifth streets in Hudson. Bryan MacCormack, executive director of Columbia County Sanctuary Movement, who was driving the car transporting the two, alleged that the Hudson police officers who were at the scene violated the executive order that made Hudson a "welcoming and inclusive" city.

A meeting was called soon after the incident by Mayor Rick Rector with MacCormack, HPD Chief Ed Moore, and others, to explore the allegations and determine if amendment or clarification of the policy was needed. A second meeting was planned, which MacCormack insisted be a public meeting. That meeting took place on Friday, March 15, and Dan Udell was there to document it. His video can be viewed here.
