Sheriff calls on president to end funding to sanctuary cities

Did the Washington Post just come out against sanctuary cities? Immigrant Workers Are Already Fighting Back Against Trump

The first meeting of the Los Angeles City Council's Ad Hoc Committee on Immigrant Affairs is being held Wednesday in another move meant to counter the changes in federal policy believed to be coming under President Donald Trump.

"There are hedges embedded right in the order itself", he said. The groups said the orders are a blow to religious liberty, pose dangers to immigrants in the USA and overseas, and could lead to a poisoning of relations between immigrants and law enforcement. The executive order also cracks down on some immigrants who are in the United States.

We recognize that both sides could profit politically from a high-profile confrontation - but the people of NY, and the nation, would be better served by a reasonable compromise.

"To all of the residents I say: we can not be led on by these incitements to fear and anxiety", he said.

"There's anxiety, and there's uncertainly in the community about what's going to happen in this new administration".

Butler County Sheriff Richard Jones called on President Donald Trump to cease funding to sanctuary cities - cities that have policies in place to protect undocumented immigrants from deportation.

What if they looked for compromise?

There is no single definition of a sanctuary city, and policies vary tremendously across the country.

He added that the executive order is written in a "very vague fashion", and expected that it would be susceptible to legal challenges and public resistance. He also noted that an illegal immigrant, who had seven felony convictions and been deported five times, was released under San Francisco's sanctuary policy before murdering a 32-year-old woman. They're not required by law to do so. "And, if there's a certain percentage of our population that thinks we're going to go door-to-door arresting people on immigration issues, then they're not going to call the police". "We're following the law, as long as we're doing that, our policies will not change in Prince George's County", said County Executive Rushern Baker. Supporters of the ordinance pointed out that undocumented immigrants who are fearful of being deported won't come forward when cops need witnesses and tips to solve crimes.

Trump's order to crack down on sanctuary cities could cost individual jurisdictions millions of dollars.

The city of Seattle's budget is roughly $5 billion, a relatively small $75 million of which comes from the federal government.

When people fear calling the police or calling on the government for help, it makes the entire city less safe, ' she said.

Another question is will Denver lose federal funding? "We're not looking forward to it".

One problem that was brought up in November after Trump's election: Law enforcement agencies and unions didn't support this mechanism of intimidating cities.

"If Trump is trying to do this without seeking more money from Congress and without creating his own federal deportation force, then he's gotta rely upon the voluntary enlistments of local jurisdictions in order to do that", said the ACLU's Blazer.

De Blasio said the loss of funds would cut the resources of the NYPD - including anti-terrorism funding - and damage relations between police officers and communities.
