Jacob Sullum: Sanctuary Status – State vs Federal

Broadcast Running Time: 24:20

When it comes to sanctuary cities, whether in regards to immigration or guns or marijuana, one side says one thing and the other side says another.  What’s the whole story?  Back with us today for an even-handed conversation is Jacob Sullum (reason.com), Senior Editor at Reason Magazine.  He examines the specifics of what sanctuary status means in regards to state versus federal, who can do what, and what cities and states are actually saying when they declare sanctuary status.  Should federal laws apply in states?  If so, how would that work?  Who has jurisdiction and why?  Where have the courts stood on these issues?  We look at all of that and more on today’s show.
