Harlem’s Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito And Others On Sanctuary Cities at NYU School of Law

In his first 100 days in office, President-Elect Donald Trump intends to cancel all federal funding to Sanctuary Cities — part of broader commitment to reduce unauthorized immigration. This raises a number of important questions. What makes a city a “sanctuary city”? How might the new administration go about defunding them? How will sanctuary cities respond to federal pressure? More broadly, what motivates cities and states to develop policy with immigrants in mind and, beyond the issue of sanctuary cities, what role might we expect cities and states to play on the issue of immigration during the Trump Presidency?

Join the Marron Institute and the NYU School of Law as we address these and other questions about cities and immigration during the Trump Presidency.
