NYC Common Sense Caucus proposes legislation to end sanctuary city status amid migrant crisis

The Common Sense Caucus, a group of city council members focused on safety and essential services, has introduced the legislation Intro 945, aimed at repealing the statutes that designate New York City as a sanctuary city.

The push from the city council group to revoke sanctuary policies comes at the heels of the migrant crisis and a growing concern over the constraint of local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities, the group made clear in a release last week.
