AUBURN, Neb. (KMTV) — The Auburn city council rejected a resolution at their Monday night meeting that would have made the town a "Sanctuary City for Preborn Children.

The resoltuion was proposed by a citizen and it also would have encouraged town residents to "promote and defend the inalienable right to life and the inherent dignity of all innocent human beings at every stage of development," according to the council agenda.

Mayor Dan White confirmed with 3 News Now the vote failed 4-2.

The ACLU of Nebraska wrote a letter, discouraging the council from passing the resolution.
