Jeff Sessions Scheduled to Speak in Miami on Wednesday

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions will be making a South Florida stop on Wednesday, promoting work between Miami-Dade County and the federal government when it comes to turning over illegal immigrants they have arrested.

Sessions will give remarks at PortMiami, along with officials from U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement. A press release sent by the Department of Justice did not say if Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez or any other officials from the county would be in attendance.

Shortly after the administration of President Donald Trump announced they would cut funding for what were labeled “sanctuary cities”, Gimenez and the county announced they would comply with government requirements when it came to reporting illegal immigrants in their custody who were arrested for other charges.

The plan, a reversal of previous county policy, was met with criticism by immigration activists and members of minority communities in Miami-Dade. Gimenez recently announced the federal government awarded the county just over $480,000 for intelligence gathering and operations as a result of their work.
