Minneapolis, Saint Paul react to Trump sanctuary city order

The cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul are promising to fight President Trump’s executive order that would strip federal funding from sanctuary cities.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Such an action could have wide-ranging impact in the Twin Cities, where Mayors Chris Coleman and Betsy Hodges have vowed to keep in place ordinances that separate the work of local police from that of federal immigration enforcement.

The point of those local ordinances — each more than 10 years old — is to aide law enforcement by encouraging undocumented immigrants to speak with police without fear of deportation.
