Mississippi moving to ban on immigrant sanctuary policies
The Mississippi House is advancing a bill to ban immigration sanctuary policies.
Senate Bill 2710 says cities, state agencies and public colleges can't prevent employees from asking someone's immigration status. These public agencies also can't give legal status to people who entered the country without permission, such as by issuing an ID card.
The bill passed the House Tuesday and returns to the Senate.
