[OP-ED]: Conservatives get tangled up trying to define ‘sanctuary cities’

 06/06/2017 - 08:33
Session writes, in order to be deemed a “sanctuary,” a jurisdiction must go out of its way to “willfully refuse to comply with 8 U.S.C. 1373.” At the same time, he makes clear, “a jurisdiction that does not willfully refuse to comply with section 1373 is not a ‘sanctuary jurisdiction.’” EFE

That’s what the Trump administration, and Republicans around the country, did when the conversation turned to sanctuary cities. They got all worked up. They declared their opposition. They threatened to withhold federal funding. 

All before they had even defined the term.
