On April 14, 2017 Salem city council voted 7-4 to pass the "Sanctuary for Peace" ordinance.

The main goal of the ordinance is to provide city services to all Salem residents, "regardless of immigration status."

The city joins a growing list of Massachusetts cities to officially vote and become a sanctuary city. Others include Amherst, Boston,

Cambridge, Northampton and Somerville.
