US Lawmakers Focus on Violent Undocumented Immigrants


U.S. lawmakers want to compel local districts to cooperate with immigration officials to keep violent, undocumented immigrants off American streets. At issue are so-called “sanctuary cities” that do not notify federal officials when they have suspected illegal immigrants in custody, or when those individuals are about to be released. As VOA’s Michael Bowman reports, a Senate panel heard testimony about the issue as legislation was unveiled targeting sanctuary cities.
