President Donald Trump’s immigration policy has taken a more rigorous approach on illegal immigration, applying further pressure on sanctuary cities.
Reports claim that it has been officially confirmed by the Justice Department that it will be blocking Byrne Justice Assistance Grants, which stand for the lion’s share of federal aid to localities as well as states for criminal justice, from sanctuary cities and jurisdictions which prevent ICE from properly doing their job by preventing from interviewing inmates or talking to local officials.
The Sanctuary cities which house some of the biggest illegal immigrant criminals and give them shelter, food and jobs, only so they can increase the violence and crime rates will be feeling the pressure of this particularly fitting move. Down below is the list of sanctuary cities:
The new set of rules announced by Attorney General Jeff Sessions have the four top grant-receivers such as Cook County, Illinois, New York City, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, as the ones which are most-likely to be disqualified from the grants if they keep up their current anti-ICE policies.
Despite all the chaotic events taking place in Washington, DC, it is always great to see how the Trump administration is capable of handling various tasks at the same time, with the immigration one being placed at the top of their priority list.
