        The Lowdown | What Are Sanctuary Cities and How Are They Bracing for Trump’s Immigration Crackdown? Lesson Plan

        President Trump signed an executive order during his first month in office aimed at bolstering local immigration enforcement and punishing cities and counties—often referred to as “sanctuary cities”—that don’t fully comply with federal immigration authorities. In response, San Francisco filed a suit in federal court arguing that Trump’s executive order exceeds his constitutional power. This lesson will examine the history of sanctuary cities and ask students to look at arguments on both sides of the issue in light of recent developments.
