The fight over sanctuary cities in the U.S.

"And I applaud Jeff Sessions, and anyone in the country or the Trump administration, that would stand up to them and take action", he says.

Responding to the Seattle lawsuit, a U.S. Justice Department representative said in a statement: "Failure to deport aliens who are convicted of criminal offenses makes our nation less safe by putting unsafe criminals back on our streets".

These cities also largely do not honor requests from Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to detain individuals beyond what is allowed by criminal proceedings.
