    Victory! Louisiana Enacts Anti-Sanctuary City Legislation

    Victory! Louisiana Enacts Anti-Sanctuary City Legislation

    FAIR Take | June 2024



    On the heels of passing legislation to make illegal immigration a crime in the state, Louisiana has also enacted an anti-sanctuary city law. Senate Bill (S.B.) 208 was signed into law by Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry and became effective on May 28. The law, which mirrors anti-sanctuary laws like Texas’ 2017 law and Florida’s 2019 law, effectively makes it unlawful for any sanctuary policy to be implemented within the state.

    The new law provides that state or local entities and law enforcement agencies are prohibited from adopting or implementing a sanctuary policy.

    A sanctuary policy, as defined in the new law, is any policy, practice, or law that prohibits or interferes with communication between state and local agencies and federal immigration agencies, or which otherwise prevents or obstructs law enforcement agencies in the state from cooperating with federal immigration authorities.

    Examples of cooperation between state agencies and federal immigration authorities include: complying with immigration detainers, notifying federal authorities before releasing detainees in custody, and participating in 287(g) agreements which allow state and local officials to aid in the enforcement of immigration laws.

    Additionally, the new law requires law enforcement agencies to use their “best efforts to support the enforcement of federal immigration law.” In particular, state, local, and law enforcement entities, including their employees, may not “prohibit or in any way restrict” law enforcement agencies from sending information regarding an alien’s immigration status from federal authorities, receiving information on immigration status from federal authorities, using such information to comply with immigration detainers, and exchanging such information with federal authorities or other state and local entities.

    Despite encouraging pervasive immigration information sharing, the law does carve out one exception. S.B. 208 expressly states that local entities or law enforcement agencies are not required to provide federal immigration authorities with information pertaining to a victim or witness of a criminal offense if the witness or victim cooperates in the investigation or prosecution of the offense.

    Importantly, however, Louisiana’s new law contains a provision that helps enforce the new anti-sanctuary measures. Under this provision, the state attorney general, in consultation with the governor, is allowed to file lawsuits against any government entity or law enforcement agency for any violations of SB 208. If a trial court concludes that a violation has occurred, the court must enjoin the sanctuary policy to keep it from taking effect.

    Louisiana’s anti-sanctuary law is a great victory for immigration enforcement advocates. However, there are many cities and states that still offer illegal aliens a safe haven.

    These sanctuary policies have devastating consequences in terms of crime, such as the murder of a 2-year-old child by an illegal alien who had an immigration detainer issued for him twice that was not honored, or the tragic and recent murder of Laken Riley in Georgia. In addition to the heightened risk of crime, sanctuary cities dispense enormous resources to illegal aliens, who often are prioritized over American citizens, costing taxpayers billions of dollars.

    It remains to be seen whether more states follow in the footsteps of Louisiana, Texas, and Florida, but it is an important step in the right direction for placing the interests and security of American citizens before those who have no right to be in the United States.

    Mandatory cut off every state and federal tax dollar funding illegal aliens.

    Reverse Plyer vs Doe. NO SCHOOL...period. That is aiding and abetting, and we should not pay for it.

    No birthright citizenship. Issue a Certificate of Child Abroad.

    E-Verify jobs, voting, housing, bank accounts, drivers' licenses, school, healthcare, welfare, food stamps, utilities.

    Illegal aliens should be handed over to our military, processed on base, and immediately deported. No media. They are a national security threat to our country.

    Station our military on our northern and southern border.
