Tillis and Colleagues Urge AG Garland To Explain Decision To Support Funding for Sanctuary Cities

Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Recently, U.S. Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Chuck Grassley (R-IA), Jim Inhofe (R-OK), Steve Daines (R-MT), Mike Braun (R-IN), Kevin Cramer (R-ND), Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), Joni Ernst (R-IA), Roger Wicker (R-MS), and James Lankford (R-OK) sent a letter to the Department of Justice requesting Attorney General Merrick Garland release guidance memos produced by the DOJ that reinstated funding for sanctuary cities and jurisdictions.

    "Today, at least 11 states have adopted sanctuary policies and hundreds of local governments have established themselves as sanctuary cities," wrote the Senators. "This leaves their citizens at risk to the dangerous, violent criminal aliens who are released because these jurisdictions either fail to notify federal officials, or refuse to cooperate with reasonable requests to detain them."

    The Senators continued, "We are also troubled that this decision was made without transparency, and continues to be shrouded in secrecy. While the public has not been provided access to your memo effectively endorsing sanctuary policies, this memo appears to have been shared widely with mainstream, liberal media outlets. A decision with such serious public safety consequences should be open and accessible, but instead, DOJ has kept this information from everyone except their partisan media allies."
