Anti-sanctuary city bill moves forward in Legislature

A bill that would prohibit local governments and public universities from passing policies to allow sanctuary cities or deviate from federal immigration laws was passed by a House committee Thursday.
The House Judiciary B Committee passed Senate Bill 2710 on Thursday and added an amendment by Rep. John Moore, R-Brandon, requiring compliance with federal and state laws.
“This is an issue we have looked at for years,” said House Judiciary B Chairman Andy Gipson, R-Braxton.
