4:47 am
the state department strongly warns against it. but they're also looking at other measures, like possibly an executive order here on capitol hill. a democrat and republican have introduced what they call the north korea travel control act that would require people to get a license to travel to north korea. seems that there's more support for that in the house than in the senate. but what's happened to warmbier could certainly push the senate to consider it. >> tracie potts for us. >> thank you, tracie. lawmakers in rockville are taking steps they say will protect immigrants in their city. late last night the city council passed an amendment that bars all city employees, including police officers from checking a person's legal status. that's unless it's required by law. now, council members did not specifically use the term sanctuary city when they passed the new bill. but before the vote, council members heard from members of the community who gave thoughts
