enforcement agencies are holding events today to go over the conversation about sanctuary cities and counties. and this is certainly a hot topic, since president trump vowed to de-fund sanctuary cities. he signed an executive order almost two months ago. and the policy means that local authorities refuse to cooperate, with federal immigration authorities, when it comes to holding undocumented immigrants, until the feds can pick them up. in most case, local law enforcement doesn't even collect the information on immigration status, from people they come in contact with. and despite the president's threats, several local cities are standing their ground and defending their policies. >> the city of san francisco renewed its fight against president donald trump last week, asking a judge to stop an executive order that strips funding from sanctuary cities. and cities calling it an emergency because there is so much uncertainty, and they can't complete the budget, and now san francisco sheriff vicky hennessey is holding a public policy forum today at noon at
