Iowa governor signs into law ban on ‘sanctuary cities’

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds has signed an immigration enforcement bill that bans so-called sanctuary cities.

The Republican governor signed the bill privately on Tuesday. The news was tucked into a press release about 16 other bill signings.

The new law will require law enforcement to follow requests from federal agents to hold a jailed person suspected of being in the country illegally. Local governments risk losing state funding if they don’t comply with the law.
