The Mayor Of Miami-Dade Is Ordering Jails To Obey Trump's Sanctuary City Announcement

On Wednesday, President Trump announced that his administration plans to strip federal funding from sanctuary cities, counties and states, which have ordinances limiting law enforcement from assisting immigration officers in the detention and deportation of undocumented immigrants. As many cities, counties and states have doubled down on their commitment to protect their undocumented residents, Miami-Dade’s mayor has demanded that county jails in the area cooperate fully.

On Thursday, Mayor Carlos Gimenez of Miami-Dade ordered county jails to cooperate with the recently-signed executive order, even though Miami is not a sanctuary city.

According to the Miami Herald, Gimenez wrote a memo to the interim director of the corrections and rehabilitation department for Miami-Dade county and demanded that the correction officials follow the new executive order. The south Florida city, according to the Miami Herald, never recognized itself as a sanctuary city and has not been complying with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (I.C.E.) for one reason: money. The officials have not cooperated with federal immigration officials in the past because the federal government had never fully reimbursed their costs for detaining undocumented immigrants for indefinite periods of time.

People in Miami are already voicing their opinions of Gimenez’s announcement and the American Civil Liberty’s Union of Florida is already preparing to fight back.

“Today’s decision by Mayor Gimenez flies in the face of Miami’s long history as a city of immigrants,” ACLU of Florida Executive Director Howard Simon said in a statement today. “It also flies in the face of the advice of professional law enforcement that policies like the one Gimenez embraced today serve only to drive a wedge of distrust between law enforcement and our immigrant community.”

“We will resist every attempt by our government to punish immigrants, regardless of their status,” Simon said in a statement.
