The Trump administration announced that it is going to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants. The purpose is to put pressure on sanctuary cities for not using local law enforcement to enforce immigration laws.

This tactic is clearly an attempt to whip up fears about immigrants, and to try and put pressure on local governments. Of course the reason why sanctuary cities exist is because it allows undocumented immigrants to approach the police about crimes without fear of being arrested themselves.
