SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE -- Jason McDaniel, an associate professor of Political Science at San Francisco State University, said cities’ refusal to cooperate with Trump’s immigration policies marks a turning point in the fight between the administration and sanctuary cities. “It’s no longer symbolic,” McDaniel said. “If this starts being about policing funds, about transportation funds and all the things that the city relies upon ... it’s going to be a tough balancing act for mayors like Ed Lee.”
