Sanctuary policies are jeopardizing public safety. Recently, an illegal immigrant gang member from El Salvador was allowed to walk free from Rikers Island. Another illegal immigrant gang member was freed from a Denver county jail and shortly after, accused of murder. I am working hard to END Sanctuary Cities in Louisiana and keep instances like these from happening in our State. LIKE to #SayNoToSanctuaryCities!
"It was a pleasure to join my fellow Attorneys General this week in visiting newly confirmed U.S. AG Jeff Sessions. As Louisiana’s chief legal officer, I am thrilled to work with a federal partner like Mr. Sessions who opposes illegal immigration and sanctuary cities. Tackling our broken immigration system will make Louisiana and all of America safer." -Attorney General Jeff Landry
