Sanctuary Cities Undermine the Law

“In fact, Khan should have been in custody at the time because six weeks earlier Khan was jailed and arrested for domestic violence charges. Because he was in the country illegally, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) filed a detainer that requested that the jail give ICE prior notice and the opportunity to detain Khan before the jail released him.
