Abstract

This contribution to the "Immigration and Naturalization" chapter of volume 52 of the ABA Section of International Law's Year in Review tracks developments in 2017 relating to "sanctuary" policies that disentangle local law enforcement from federal immigration enforcement, examining pressure applied on sanctuary jurisdictions not only by the federal government but also by state governments, and the countervailing litigation and policy advocacy instigated at the local level.

Keywords: immigration, crimmigration, sanctuary, federalism
