Warner Blasts Philadelphia Sanctuary City Ruling
6/12/2018
HARRISBURG – Rep. Ryan Warner (R-Fayette/Westmoreland) today expressed extreme disappointment in a federal judge’s court ruling that favored the city of Philadelphia over whether the Trump administration could withhold law enforcement grants over city officials’ sanctuary city policies.

“The federal government has a duty to protect American citizens and keep them safe, and this ruling runs completely counter to that responsibility,” said Warner. “Philadelphia is accepting federal grant money; therefore, it should be following federal law and not allowing a sanctuary for illegal immigrants and those who commit crimes.”

Warner has authored legislation, House Bill 1667, that backs the Trump administration’s policy and would require state and local law enforcement agencies to comply with federal law. Specifically, the legislation would require state and local law enforcement agencies to comply with requests to notify federal immigration officials before the release of certain individuals, as well as maintain custody of certain individuals already in their custody for up to 48 hours beyond when such individuals would otherwise be released.

“The dangers of sanctuary cities are well documented,” said Warner. “My legislation would require local and state law enforcement agencies to cooperate with the federal government and assist the federal government in achieving success with respect to their immigration policies.”

Currently, House Bill 1667 rests in the House State Government Committee.
