Show Tile for What to Know on Immigration

Our fourth episode of “What You Need to Know on Immigration” covers so-called “sanctuary cities” and their place in the politics of immigration. BPC’s Theresa Brown and Jordan LaPier cover what exactly a sanctuary city is; the relationship between state, local, and federal law enforcement on immigration; and legal challenges to sanctuary cities (such as the high-profile “Kate’s Law” that recently passed in the House of Representatives).
