President Donald Trump could withhold nearly $27 billion from sanctuary cities as a penalty for harboring illegal immigrants, a nonprofit group reported Friday.
“We sourced nearly $27 billion to sanctuary cities in federal grants and direct payments” in 2016, a report by the accountability group Open The Books said.
“The vast majority of federal monies fund critical infrastructure in major cities like housing, education, law enforcement and policing and transportation,” Open The Books CEO Adam Andrzejewski told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Ultimately, the courts will determine the scope of federal funding penalties.”
