Update: President Trump Signs An Executive Order To Block Funding From Sanctuary Cities

Date: January 25th, 2017

Fox News:

“Another order is aimed at helping federal immigration agents crack down on illegal immigration, by restoring the so-called Secure Communities program, directing the State Department to use its leverage to ensure illegal immigrant criminals are taken back by their country of origin – and moving to strip federal grant money to sanctuary states and cities that “harbor” illegal immigrants.

The latter move is sure to trigger a backlash from the hundreds of jurisdictions that have such policies in place. But critics have blasted those policies in the wake of violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants who were effectively protected from deportation by local jurisdictions.”

The Hill:

“The immigration actions also seek to withhold visas from countries to make sure they take back people in the U.S. illegally who are found to have broken U.S. laws. It would also strip federal grants from “sanctuary” cities and states that do not enforce federal immigration laws.

“We’re going to strip federal grant money from the sanctuary states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants,” Spicer said.”

Reuters:

“Trump signed two executive orders, directing the construction of a wall along the roughly 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) U.S.-Mexico border, moving to peel away federal grant money from “sanctuary” states and cities that harbor illegal immigrants and beefing up the force of immigration agents.”

NBC News:

“Another executive action on immigration policy includes nixing federal funding to so-called “sanctuary cities” — a loose term that refers to cities and counties that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation — unless those funds are related to law enforcement. That action also directs the hiring of 5,000 new border patrol agents and triples the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.”
