Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced changes in federal immigration law, specifically sanctuary cities, Monday at the White House press briefing.
Sanctuary cities and sanctuary states would no longer get federal grants, Sessions said. He argued that such cities, which helps undocumented immigrants avoid deportation, put people in danger.
Leaders of some big cities have said they are willing to face a cut in federal funds to remain sanctuary cities.
Here's a clip of his speech.
