COLEMAN AMENDMENT DEFEATED IN NARROW VOTE

Rate this Entry

The Coleman amendment would bar state and local governments from having rules that instruct law enforcement officers not to inquire about one's immigration status. The amendment is important because law enforcement agencies are concerned that illegal immigrants will fail to report crimes or act as witnesses when they fear being turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The supporters of the amendment were largely targeting "sanctuary" cities like San Francisco and Philadelphia. I have not seen the vote count yet, but believe it was close.
