Rosenstein: DOJ is Cracking Down on Sanctuary Cities

The deputy attorney general said sanctuary policies threaten public safety.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein told Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Sunday that the Department of Justice was cracking down on sanctuary cities to improve public safety.

“Cities that release criminal aliens put everybody at risk,” Rosenstein said.

The deputy attorney general cited an instance of an illegal immigrant murdering an American citizen while under deportation order, and he said it put immigration officials at risk if they were required to hunt down the illegal immigrants.
