What are sanctuary cities? Here's a list of sanctuary cities, counties, states

President Donald Trump has ordered cuts in federal grants for cities that offer safe harbor for undocumented immigrants.

Called “sanctuary cities,” each could lose millions in federal grant dollars once the order takes effect.

What are santuary cities? They are cities and counties (and in some instances, states) that have policies in place that limit cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

More than 200 jurisictions refused requests from the federal government to detain individuals for possible deportation from the country. According to CNN, ICE Director Sarah Saldaña testified before Congress saying some groups refused ICE agenst access to jails and prisons.
