Sanctuary Cities: A Debate with Dean Harold Krent and Hans von Spakovsky


The City of Chicago has sued the Federal Government for attempting to withhold certain federal funds from "sanctuary cities." Sanctuary cities limit their cooperation with the Federal government's effort to enforce immigration law. Does that violate the principles of federalism? Does withholding federal funds from sanctuary cities infringe on local sovereignty?

Let's discuss. Dean Harold Krent of Chicago-Kent and Hans von Spakovsky of the Heritage Foundation will argue for and against the constitutional issues surrounding sanctuary cities.

Tuesday, March 27, noon, Room 370. Free Chic-fil-a.
