Gov. Malloy not worried about federal suit over sanctuary cities
Gov. Dannel Malloy says he's not concerned about the federal government possibly suing Connecticut because some of its cities are considered so-called sanctuary cities.
The governor said Wednesday what's happening in Connecticut "is totally legal."
The Trump administration Tuesday sued to block California laws that extend protections to people living in the U.S. without legal status.
The Justice Department argues such laws have prevented federal agents from doing their jobs.
Several cities in the state have policies in place to protect immigrants.
Without those, Malloy says there's a fear people will be forced underground and out-of-reach of local law enforcement.
Last year, Malloy's office recommended local police not take action solely to enforce federal immigration law, or allow Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents to question people already in custody.
