Philadelphia won't allow U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to use its arrest database after Aug. 31, the AP reports. Mayor Jim Kenney, a Democrat, accused ICE of wrongfully using the database to locate undocumented immigrants even without criminal records.
The big picture: This comes as some progressive Democrats, led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have latched on to an "abolish ICE" campaign. Republicans have just as quickly used the phrase as a political weapon against Democrats. Meanwhile, Trump's efforts to defund "sanctuary cities" such as Philadelphia are currently blocked by a federal judge's injunction.
