FTLF’s Managing Partner Edward “Ted” Waters’ Op-Ed on Sanctuary Cities Executive Order Published in The Hill

FTLF’s Managing Partner Edward (Ted) Waters’ Op-Ed on Trump’s Sanctuary Cities Executive Order and its impact on public services was printed today in “The Hill”.

“Little known is the fact that since the 1960s, virtually all initiatives to improve our country have been accomplished by state and local governments, nonprofit agencies and others fueled by federal grants.

The president, on Jan. 25, put those funds and the totality of public services in dozens of jurisdictions in jeopardy. With his sanctuary city executive order, he made every community that refuses to assist U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) ineligible for federal funding. In that order’s crosshairs are San Francisco, Boston, Denver and every other city that has declared itself, or simply acts like, a sanctuary jurisdiction.”
