NC Senate Bill Has Tougher Penalties on Sanctuary Cities, Universities Than House Proposal…

Excerpt From: News & Observer. Written By: Colin Campbell.

While the N.C. House is already considering a bill to penalize immigration “sanctuary cities,” a Republican senator filed his own proposal Tuesday that includes tougher penalties than the House version.

Sen. Norman Sanderson, a Pamlico County Republican, wants to crack down on both local governments and public universities that don’t comply with federal immigration laws. His bill would strip funding from public universities “that limit or restrict the enforcement of immigration laws and communication with federal law enforcement agencies,” according to a news release.

Local governments that violate the state’s 2015 ban on sanctuary-city policies would lose a variety of revenue sources distributed by the state: City street funding as well as revenue from beer and wine taxes, telecommunication taxes, sales taxes on video programming, taxes on natural gases and scrap tire disposal taxes.
