ICE Report Calls Out Sanctuary Cities

The federal government has issued a warning to so-called sanctuary jurisdictions across the country to start cooperating with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, or risk losing federal funds. For the first time since President Trump signed an executive order to identify any jurisdiction that ignores federal detainer requests, the ICE agency has released a list of more than 200 detainers that have been ignored, including requests in four different Oregon counties.

Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan looks at how all of the increased scrutiny could impact Central Oregon and other sanctuary areas across the state, where ICE agents are already making arrests.
