    'Sanctuary cities' for immigration barred from federal law enforcement funding

    WASHINGTON (CBS5) -

    An amendment that bars cities that do not fully assist with federal immigration enforcement, also known as "sanctuary cities," from funding has been approved by the House of Representatives.

    The amendment was added to the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014.

    Rep. Matt Salmon offered the amendment during a debate on the bill, and his amendment was adopted by a voice vote.

    Salmon emphasized the growing problem of sanctuary cities.

    "The reality is that sanctuary cities contribute to an ever bigger illegal immigration problem and should not benefit from federal law enforcement funding," he said. "These funds should be reserved for those cities that actively enforce the law."
