ICE Releases List of Sanctuary Cities Set To Lose Federal Funding

ICE has identified 118 sanctuary cities around the country that are set to lose federal funds.

This is all in accordance with an executive order President Trump put in place for ICE agents to keep a tally of sanctuary jurisdictions so that they can face the repercussions.

From The Daily Caller

An executive order signed by President Trump in late January called for ICE to release a weekly report on jurisdictions that ignore immigration detainers and for those sanctuary localities to be stripped of federal funding. Immigration detainers are a request from ICE to a jail or another local law enforcement agency to hold someone in violation of immigration law so they can be picked up.

Sanctuary counties and cities have been attempting to deny that they indeed ignore ICE detainers, but the report released Monday makes certain which places the federal government can indeed strip federal funding from. These sanctuary jurisdictions include Philadelphia; Clark County, Nev.; Washington D.C.; Boston; Newark; New York City; Chicago; Milwaukee and all of Rhode Island’s state prisons.

The ICE report details how within the week of Jan. 28 and Feb. 3 jurisdictions declined to enforce 206 detainers issued by ICE. This was out of a total of 3,083 detainers issued that week.
