Senator Hoeven backing bill to withhold federal funding from "sanctuary cities"

(Fargo, ND) -- Senator John Hoeven is joining Senator Ted Cruz in reintroducing the "Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act". 

Hoeven says the legislation is aimed at stopping sanctuary city policies and withholding federal, taxpayer-funded grants from jurisdictions that prevent law enforcement officers from cooperating with federal immigration officials.

“The crisis at our southern border is out of control. To get a handle on it, the Biden administration need to enforce our laws,” said Hoeven. “Sanctuary cities disregard federal immigration laws and need to be held accountable for their actions. This legislation will help to stop sanctuary cities and ensure that we are upholding the law of the land and maintaining the rule of law.”
