US Attorney General William Barr announced that the Department of Justice would be escalating their efforts to combat the policies of “sanctuary cities” to aid illegal aliens.
“The department is filing a complaint against the State of New Jersey seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against its laws that forbid state and local law enforcement from sharing vital information about criminal aliens with DHS,” Barr said, according to Fox News.
Barr went on to say the legal action against New Jersey was just one of a number of lawsuits against municipalities that employ “sanctuary city” policies to undermine the enforcement of federal immigration law.
“We are filing a complaint seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against King County, Washington, for the policy,” Barr explained, “that forbids DHS from deporting aliens from the United States using King County International Airport.”
