AG Sessions pulling federal funding from cities that fail to comply with federal immigration law
Amid the controversy in Maryland over the alleged gang rape of a teenage girl by two young men, one of whom is an illegal immigrant who was detained and then released, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is cracking down on cities that fail to enforce federal immigration laws by cutting off federal funding.
“The Department of Justice will require that jurisdictions seeking or applying for DOJ grants to certify compliance with [U.S. Code 1373] as a condition of receiving those awards,” Sessions said.
U.S. Code 1373 is a law stating that localities cannot prevent the federal government from enforcing the nation’s laws on immigration. The law also regulates communications between local agencies and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
“Countless Americans would be alive today … if these policies of sanctuary cities were ended,” Sessions said.
