The Trump Administration will be able to “flip the switch” on federal funding to the nation’s top-ten sanctuary jurisdictions on day one, says U.S. Representative John Culberson (R-TX). Speaking to a group of supporters in Houston this week, Culberson said existing law allows the Trump Administration to not only stop future funding to these jurisdictions, but actually take back past funding.
