AG Barr Escalates Attacks on Sanctuary Jurisdictions

Attorney General William Barr says he’s escalating federal actions against sanctuary jurisdictions, such as California, as well as other states, cities and counties that do not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement actions. He announced new lawsuits against New Jersey and King County, Washington, as well as attacking local district attorneys who he says charge undocumented immigrants with lower offenses so they will not become subject to deportation.
