Sanctuary Cities 2017 Map: List Of Places Protecting Undocumented Immigrants

Trump said he will instruct DHS to work "within the existing framework" of the law to secure the U.S. -Mexico border.

"We're going to wait and see what the executive order states and then we're going to have a discussion on what that means for Maywood moving forward", he said. The source said the refugee/national security executive orders are expected Wednesday, with immigration and sanctuary cities expected Thursday. Trump also mentioned new support which may become available as the department seeks to establish an office to aid "victims of illegal immigrant crime", without specifying an estimated budget for such aid.

The term can be a bit vague, but in general, it refers to a city or municipality that refuses to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement. The law declared that local authorities could not keep immigrants in custody to be handed over to federal immigration officials if they had no violent felonies on their records and did not now face charges. That action also directs the hiring of 5,000 new border patrol agents and triples the number of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

"The American people are no longer going to have to be forced to subsidize this disregard for our laws", he said. San Francisco declared itself a sanctuary city in 1989, and city officials strengthened the stance in 2013 with its "Due Process for All" ordinance.

During a confirmation hearing on January 10, Kelly stated, "If you build a wall, you would still have to back that wall up with patrolling by human beings, by sensors, by observation devices". "You would need a very big labour force to build it - some 40,000 people working over five years".

"Immigration is generally considered in the purview of the federal government and if that stands legal challenges, federal law beats state and local ordinances".

Share prices surged on Wednesday for U.S. companies that could benefit from U.S. President Trump's plans to push ahead with a border wall with Mexico and his approval of key energy pipeline expansion projects. "I call it extreme vetting", Trump said in August, according to The Hill.

He cited a ruling in federal court yesterday.

A recentLos Angeles Times article quotes two senior officials in the Trump transition team who said the government may pursue "migrants who have been charged but not convicted, suspected gang members and drug dealers, and people charged with such immigration violations as illegal reentry and overstaying visas, as well as lower-level misdemeanors".

President Trump often used the shooting as an example of why he wanted to abolish sanctuary cities.
