Week 12

This week I did research on sanctuary cities, what they are and their purpose. I found that Sanctuary cities are cities in which the officials will not provide information to federal immigrant authorities. Homeland security requests authorities to hold suspects for up to 48 hours in order for immigration agents to arrive, but it is arguably a violation to the rights and due process of these individuals. Ultimately with the new Presidency Sanctuary cities are being reprimanded and may be cut of federal funding for police departments for not working with Homeland Security.
