Kentucky Republican pre-files legislation that would ban sanctuary cities
FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ)- A Republican state representative has pre-filed legislation that would ban sanctuary cities in Kentucky.
Representative Lynn Bechler’s bill, BR 240, would prohibit cities and counties from adopting sanctuary policies that would keep police from enforcing immigration laws.
It would make any local government enacting sanctuary city policies ineligible to get state funding.
Currently, there are no sanctuary cities in Kentucky.
