No Federal Funding to Benefit Sanctuary Cities Act

This bill prohibits a sanctuary jurisdiction from receiving federal financial assistance. The term "sanctuary jurisdiction" means a state or local government that prohibits or restricts (1) information sharing about an individual's immigration status, or (2) compliance with a lawfully issued detainer request or notification of release request.

The bill authorizes a state or local government to comply with a detainer and limits the liability of a state or local government for complying with the detainer.
