A former high-ranking federal immigration official told BuzzFeed News there’s no legal reason why schools can’t refuse to cooperate with US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), however, just as with sanctuary cities, Trump’s administration could restrict the flow of millions in federal funds.
“That could be incredibly painful to universities who receive large grants,” said John Sandweg, former acting director of ICE and previous acting general counsel of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

They are targeting funding to Universities to get back at "sanctuary" cites. The biggest thing about sanctuary cites is so police can actually work with the community. If people are worried about deportation or getting someone else deported they maybe unlikely to talk to police. It is a similar to how the drug wars have hurt communities.
Well I think we need to reform the immigration policy so that enough people can get in legally to do the work that is needed in the U.S. - they send the money back to their families in Mexico or even further south, so it helps them out, too. I'm not a nationalist, so I do care that other people have the opportunities to help themselves and their families (even though they are not U.S. citizens) while providing labor for the U.S. The immigration law as it stands now must not work, or all of these illegal immigrants would have come in legally.
