Sanctuary cities and counties in California and across the nation are struggling with confusion and disarray as they deal with anti-sanctuary measures undertaken by the Trump administration. There are approximately 200 sanctuary jurisdictions in the nation. They, and some jurisdictions that do not have sanctuary policies, risk losing federal funding if they don't comply with administration orders on cooperation between local law enforcement and immigration authorities.

It is important to understand the removal and deportation process

Deportation proceedings can be understandably emotional for those that are subject to deportation and removal and for their families. As a result, it is important to understand as much about the process as possible and have trained guidance whenever possible.

A look at the deportation and removal process

Attorney General compares border communities to 'war zone'

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is widely regarded as a tough-talking politician who is promising big changes in law enforcement. In a recent speech, Sessions described the border as a "war zone." Some immigrant rights advocates say Sessions is dishonestly misstating the reality of life in border communities such as San Diego, where crime has fallen to historic levels.
