ICE Releases List of ‘Sanctuary’ Cities That Could Lose Funding

In a high-stakes version of a perp walk, the Trump administration shamed 118 ‘sanctuary’ jurisdictions that refuse to cooperate with the federal government regarding criminal illegal immigrants. Those listed could lose federal funding for their actions – or inaction depending on how you look at it.

At the President’s behest, the department of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) released details of these cities which are located in the Department of Homeland Security’s Weekly Declined Detainer Outcome Report.

Some of the detainers that were refused by sanctuary entities involve individuals who are accused of very serious crimes, including arson, violent assaults, or in the case of Philadelphia … Homicide!

Via the Daily Caller:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement identified Monday 118 sanctuary jurisdictions around the country that could lose federal funds.

An executive order signed by President Trump in late January called for sanctuary jurisdictions to be stripped of federal funding and for ICE to release a weekly report on localities that ignore immigration detainers. 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.

In Boulder County, Colorado, federal detainers were ignored for three illegal immigrants with assault convictions, two more with serious drug convictions, and a burglary conviction.

Meanwhile, Clark County, Nevada led the way with having 51 detainers issued, with Nassau County, New York right behind at 38. Both rank highly on the list of jurisdictions “that do not comply with detainers on a routine basis.”
