The Maryland General Assembly is currently considering several bills to address dangerous sanctuary policies. Sanctuary policies prohibit or restrict law enforcement from cooperating with federal immigration officials, allowing criminal aliens to live and work freely in communities.
The General Assembly will be holding hearings on critical measures to defeat sanctuary policies in the state.
- On February 21, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 830, which requires enhanced state and local cooperation by requiring correctional facilities in the state to notify ICE at least 72 hours before an individual with an immigration detainer is released from custody; and
- On March 7, the House Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing on House Bill 598, which will prohibit sanctuary policies and require local governments to fully cooperate with federal immigration officials.
The General Assembly also has scheduled hearings for dangerous legislation to obstruct immigration enforcement.
- On February 21, the Senate Judiciary Proceedings Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 835, a dangerous bill that prohibits Maryland officials from engaging in any immigration enforcement activities, including mere cooperation with federal authorities with regard to criminals in custody; and
- On February 28, the House Judiciary Committee will also hold a public hearing on House Bill 1362, a similar bill that blocks Maryland from engaging in any immigration enforcement activities or cooperation efforts.
