Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Act
To prohibit the receipt of Federal financial assistance by sanctuary cities, and for other purposes.
Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Act This bill prohibits a state or local government from receiving federal financial assistance for a minimum of one year if it restricts or prohibits a government entity or official from: (1) sending to or receiving from the responsible federal immigration agency information regarding an individual's citizenship or immigration status, or (2) maintaining or exchanging information about an individual's status. The bill restores assistance eligibility upon a Department of Justice (DOJ) determination that the jurisdiction no longer restricts or prohibits such actions. DOJ shall report each year to Congress regarding state or local jurisdictions that restrict or prohibit such actions.
