ICE suspends reports on sanctuary cities

- Los Angeles Times

WASHINGTON — Immigratio­n and Customs Enforcemen­t is suspending a recently adopted practice of reporting cities that don’t cooperate with federal detention efforts after the first few reports were plagued by errors.

The new policy, an attempt to pressure cities and counties that refuse to hold people in the country illegally for immigratio­n agents, was a priority for President Donald Trump. Last month, Attorney General Jeff Sessions promised to push back against “sanctuary cities,” possibly by denying them federal funds and using other methods of pressure.

The weekly “declined detainer” reports by ICE were supposed to be a first step.
