Monday, February 8, 2016Sen. Tom Garrett, a Republican representing Buckingham County patroned SB270, a bill that prohibits funds to Virginia cities that pass an ordinance allowing the city to become a “sanctuary city.” There are no sanctuary cities in Virginia.
No locality shall adopt any ordinance, procedure, or policy that restricts the enforcement of federal immigration laws to less than the full extent permitted by federal law.
The General Assembly shall reduce state funding to the extent permitted by state and federal law to any locality found to have violated the provisions of this section.
