Previously, Trump had warned that "sanctuary cites" could lose all federal funding, theLos Angeles Times reported in March, but on Monday, Sessions limited the repercussions to DOJ grants.
"Well you know, Maryland is talking about a state law, to make the state a sanctuary state". This includes refusing to detain known felons on the federal detainer request or otherwise failing to comply with these laws.
Montgomery officials have long contended that such an approach - which was recommended by a 2014 Maryland state attorney general's opinion - does not put the county in the same "sanctuary" category as localities like San Francisco, which has far more stringent rules about collaboration.
The attorney general claimed during that sanctuary cities make the nation less safe.
Sessions on Monday pointed to crimes allegedly perpetrated by immigrants who came to the USA illegally as a prime reason to enforce such policies, and argued that cities who fail to do so are putting their citizens at risk.
"Such policies make their cities and states less safe", said Sessions.
"Moreover, the Department of Justice will require that jurisdictions seeking or applying for Department of Justice grants to certify compliance with [relevant laws] as a condition of receiving those awards", he said, according to ABC News.
"I'm urging states and local jursdictions to comply with these federal laws", he said during a brief appearance at the briefing. Over 140 jurisdictions in the US have identified themselves as sanctuaries so far, according to the network.
"Despite what Attorney General Sessions implied this afternoon, state and local governments and law enforcement have broad authority under the Constitution to not participate in federal immigration enforcement", Schneiderman said in a statement.
" We have an illegal immigration problem across the country and certainly in Louisiana". "By refusing to cooperate with ICE, New Orleans is risking not only the security of citizens in our state but also their funding". "He has ignored my plea and even doubled-down on political hyperbole in opposing President Trump's efforts on this problem".
