Current through Pub. L. 114-38. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.) US Code

(June 27, 1952, ch. 477, title II, ch. 8, § 277, 66 Stat. 229; Pub. L. 100–690, title VII, § 7346(a), (c)(1), Nov. 18, 1988, 102 Stat. 4471; Pub.

You know, declaring your city a Sanctuary City sounds like a pretty sweet deal politically, except that there is this federal law that says you’ll be “imprisoned not more than 10 years.”

Ten years is a lot.
