SANCTUARY Flashback: Baltimore Among 11 Jurisdictions to Provide Legal Help for ILLEGALS

Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Thursday plans to provide increased support for immigrants facing deportation proceedings.

Baltimore is one of 11 jurisdictions that joined to form the SAFE Cities Network, a group devoted to providing publicly-funded legal representation for immigrants threatened with deportation. Prince George’s County is also part of the national network, which is supported by grant money from the Vera Institute of Justice.
