Justice ends funding to 'sanctuary cities' in huge House GOP victory


“Justice sent Culberson a letter detailing the new rules that cut off several Justice grants, many to law enforcement, if cities like San Francisco, Washington, D.C. and over 300 others block access to criminal illegals sought by federal authorities.

It is a huge victory for Culberson, chairman of the Commerce, Justice, and Science Subcommittee on Appropriations...”

“Justice officials confirmed the move in a letter to Rep. John Abney Culberson, Texas Republican and chairman of a key spending subcommittee, who had demanded action from Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch earlier this year.”

“...under Mr. Culberson’s prodding, the Justice Department reviewed existing federal law and determined that sanctuary cities violate what’s known as Section 1373, which forbids restrictions on sending or receiving information from federal immigration officers.”

“Sanctuary cities are a hub for illegal aliens and criminal activity, and we’ve seen the tragic results of these policies time and time again,” Mr. Culberson said. “It has been more than a year since Kate Steinle was murdered at the hands of a criminal illegal alien who intentionally sought out shelter in San Francisco due to the city’s sanctuary policies. This violence and suffering is intolerable and completely preventable.”

“More than $3.4 billion in funding has been given to states and cities in the past five years, Texas Rep. John Culberson said in a statement announcing the Justice Department’s updated guidance.  The Republican, who chairs the House Appropriations Committee’s Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science and Related Agencies, spurred the Justice Department’s move.”
