As the push to end illegal immigration continues, the Trump administration warns dozens of sanctuary cities to comply with federal agents or risk losing aid.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions reportedly sent letters to 29 jurisdictions last week, saying they must prove they are cooperating with immigration officials by Dec. 8, if they want to receive federal assistance.
He adds sanctuary cities adopt the view that protecting criminal immigrants is more important than the safety of law-abiding citizens.
Earlier this year, President Trump signed an executive order directing the DOJ to deny grant money to jurisdictions choosing not to cooperate with immigration laws.
