Keeping Track: H.R. 3003 “No Sanctuary Bill”

H.R. 3003 – No Sanctuary for Criminals Act

H.R. 3003 clarifies U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer authority – the tool used by federal immigration enforcement officers to request to hold immigrants at local jails – by established statutory probable cause standards to issue detainers. In addition, the bill withholds certain federal grants from jurisdictions that prohibit their officers from cooperating with ICE. Jurisdictions that comply with detainers are protected from being sued and victims of certain crimes are allowed to sue jurisdictions that refuse to comply and subsequently release criminal aliens onto the streets. Finally, the underlying bill includes Sarah and Grant’s Law, which ensures unlawful immigrants convicted of drunk driving or are arrested for other dangerous crimes are detained during their removal proceedings.
