Mayor: Syracuse not enforcing federal anti-immigrant policies despite Trump's executive order

Their impact in Detroit - and across MI - is unclear, however. Immigration experts say it makes sense for cities and counties to avoid immigration enforcement, which is complex and situational.

Trump is also seeking to "turn off the jobs and benefits magnet", saying many immigrants come to the US illegally in search of jobs even though federal law prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants. What I'm doing is good for the United States'.

Washington, another sanctuary city, spent $2.8 billion in federal funding during fiscal year 2015 - almost a third of its total expenditures that year, a report from the D.C. Fiscal Policy Institute said. There are many counties, municipalities and even four states that have enacted policies or legislation that limit local law enforcement from complying with ICE orders.

Those who favor more or less open immigration or so-called "sanctuary cities" (which ignore federal immigration law) may consider the Steinle case an extreme example of the immigration problem.

Some 300 such cities, counties or states - from NY to Los Angeles - exist throughout the United States, and many of them have vowed since Trump's election to protect the estimated 11 million undocumented migrants living in the country.

"We do not believe this applies to the City of Detroit", said Alexis Wiley, Mayor Mike Duggan's chief of staff. A man who had been previously deported and had been released by local law enforcement was charged in her death. It was not immediately clear what Ann Arbor's status is on cooperating with immigration officials.

Additionally, the Clippers don't seem to have the interesting draft picks to make a trade with NY , for Anthony, feasible. That brings down his trade value to a level that wouldn't be catastrophic for the Clippers if they lost him.

"Wasting billions of taxpayer dollars on a border wall Mexico will never pay for, and punishing cities that do not want their local police forces forced to serve as President Trump's deportation dragnet does nothing to fix our immigration system or keep Americans safe", said Pelosi.

Chicago, however, is a sanctuary city. The order mandates that federal agencies withhold grants from cities and states that do not fully cooperate with immigration agents, The Atlantic reports.

U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, D-Scranton, had a polar opposite reaction, saying that Trump's actions "have grave potential effects on Pennsylvania communities" and the executive order "could strip needed resources from communities across the country, crippling funding for schools, depleting resources for domestic violence shelters and halting economic development projects".

The impact of President Trump's executive orders are being felt across Colorado - with many cities wondering what is next?

"We're not going to sacrifice any of our folks here in Providence", said Jorge Elorza, the mayor of Providence, Rhode Island. The Associated Press reported Trump signed the two executive actions Wednesday during a ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security. Officials said Trump would wait until later in the week to take action on visas and refugees, potentially as early as tomorrow.

"We don't ask somebody about their immigration status", Urquhart said. Cranley's office denied the mayor ever said that.
