Public Description:  

S. 1812, the Improving Cooperation with States and Local Governments and Preventing the Catch and Release of Criminal Aliens Act of 2015, would simply encourage jurisdictions to cooperate with federal immigration enforcement agents rather than penalizing sanctuary cities. The bill would also include mandatory minimum sentencing for illegal aliens who re-enter the United States after being removed (Kate's Law), but overall, the bill would do nothing to discourage sanctuary cities.
