American cities across the nation, especially those with Democratic mayors and city councils, are declaring themselves sanctuary cities. They are refusing to comply with the federal law that requires them to hand over illegal immigrants to federal agents so they can be deported.

In fact, President Trump issued an executive order directing the Department of Homeland Security under Secretary John Kelly to find ways of limiting federal funds to these cities until they start cooperating.

And are there are a ton of ways to do it too. Reuters reports that just the top 10 sanctuary cities received over $2.27 billion in federal funding for a wide assortment of federal funds.

Secretary Kelly is expected to hire more immigration enforcement agents and have broad powers to detain and deport illegal immigrants despite local officials protest.
