As signed by Gov. Bryant, the new law would not bar implementation of local provisions prohibiting inquiries about a person’s immigration status. It also doesn’t prohibit local authorities from releasing undocumented immigrants from custody once they’ve posted bond, or served their time, even if ICE requests an immigration detainer. In short, SB2710 does not prohibit the most common sanctuary city policies and in no way outlaws sanctuary cities.
