Jeff Sessions Announces New Policies Threatening to Strip Funding From Sanctuary Cities Christine Rousselle Posted: Jul 25, 2017
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new policy on Tuesday night: cities must allow ICE (Immigration Control and Enforcement) officials into their jails. Further, jails must alert authorities when a person who is eligible for deportation is due to be released from custody. If they do not, they will not get certain law enforcement grants. These grants are typically spent on things like body cameras and other equipment used by police.
