DoJ: ‘The Attorney General Will Not Allow Sanctuary Cities to Become Sanctuaries for Criminals’
HUR: "Finally, we are also holding sanctuary cities accountable for their lawless conduct. The Attorney General will not allow sanctuary cities to become sanctuaries for criminals. Earlier this week, the Attorney General announced new grant conditions. Cities and states may only receive Byrne JAG grants if they comply with federal law, allow federal immigration officials access to detention facilities, and provide 48 hours’ notice before they release an illegal alien wanted by federal authorities. Taking on MS-13 is a top priority of this administration and this Justice Department. We will not tire and we will not fail. I’m humbled to once again be in a position to work to reduce and ultimately decimate this gang to make our community safe for all Americans. Thank you."
