CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer has proclaimed the city a capital of resistance and vowed to provide assistance to immigrants who need visa help.

Signer made the remarks Tuesday at a rally at Downtown Mall. Civic and community leaders also spoke at the event, as did Khizr Khan, the father of a Muslim American soldier died in combat in Iraq.

Signer says he is considering making Charlottesville a sanctuary city and is looking into ways to add protections for immigrants and political refugees.
