Jeff Sessions, JD, US Attorney General, in a Mar. 27, 2017 article, "Attorney General Jeff Sessions Delivers Remarks on Sanctuary Jurisdictions," available at, stated:

“The American people are justifiably angry. They know that when cities and states refuse to help enforce immigration laws, our nation is less safe. Failure to deport aliens who are convicted for criminal offenses puts whole communities at risk – especially immigrant communities in the very sanctuary jurisdictions that seek to protect the perpetrators.”
