“On Wednesday, President Trump signed an executive order promising to withhold federal money from what it calls sanctuary jurisdictions.”

No standard definition of sanctuary city exists, although in general it has been used to categorize those cities that choose not to comply with federal government requests to provide information about immigrants or refugees or otherwise use any resources to identify, apprehend, or detain immigrants or refugees for non-criminal reasons.
