      An opponent of a social services organization's proposal to house child immigrants from Central America in a small Michigan community wants voters there to have a say.

      Tamyra Murray, an organizer for Michiganders for Immigration Control and Enforcement, is seeking a referendum petition in Vassar for voters to decide on changes in city ordinances such as those that might be needed for the plans.

      Murray presented a letter to the Vassar Planning Commission on Monday, informing the city she'll file petition language.

      Grosse Pointe Park-based Wolverine Human Services has proposed housing 60 children at the 145-bed Pioneer Work and Learn Center in Vassar, about 70 miles northwest of Detroit. Many of more than 57,000 young people have fled violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
