No Transportation Funds for Sanctuary Cities Act

This bill prohibits the obligation or expenditure of certain national infrastructure investment funds for discretionary grants (commonly known as Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery [TIGER] grants) for a surface transportation infrastructure investment project in a sanctuary jurisdiction.

A "sanctuary jurisdiction" means a state or political subdivision that prohibits or restricts a government entity or official from:

  • receiving, maintaining, or providing a federal, state, or local government entity information regarding the citizenship or immigration status of an individual; or
  • complying with a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) detainer order to temporarily hold an alien in custody, transport an alien to federal custody, or notify DHS about an alien's release.
