While Syracuse Mayor Stephanie Miner wants the city to be a temporary shelter for Central American children fleeing to the country, there is a vocal opposition against it.
There are strong opinions on both sides over whether Syracuse should become a temporary shelter site for the children.
The mayor was interrupted often Thursday evening by a boisterous crowd at a North Side meeting with shouts of "legal!" and applause for comments both for and against.
It took back-to-back sessions to accommodate an overflow crowd of a few hundred.
