The U.S. Department of Justice cited public safety as the reason behind lawsuits targeting so-called sanctuary city policies in California, New Jersey and a county in Washington state.

U.S. Attorney General William Barr says the lawsuits will stop progressive politicians from putting the interests of "criminal aliens" before those of law-abiding citizens.

But some see the actions as election-year politics, while others see it as a continued crackdown on unauthorized immigrants.

Michelle Hackman reports on immigration and homeland security issues for the Wall Street Journal. Hackman joined The Show to talk about the implications of the lawsuits.
