President Donald Trump has repeatedly gone after so-called "sanctuary cities" -- cities that limit cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities -- arguing that they put public safety at risk.
The billboards would be put up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement -- the enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security -- in at least one city and would call attention to immigrants who have committed crimes and been released by local authorities. It's unclear what the billboards will look like and at what cost. If the plan proceeds, it seems intended to single out sanctuary jurisdictions and stoke fear within those communities.
