Sanctuary cities are actively subverting the federal government’s efforts to enforce immigration law. As such, they shouldn’t be eligible for federal funding. As long as sanctuary cities refuse to help enforce federal immigration law, they shouldn’t be allowed to continue receiving federal funding.
It may not be constitutional for Congress to enact this bill, as the Supreme Court has previously found it unconstitutional for Congress to withhold federal funding from states and localities in retaliation for their refusal to implement a federal program.
