Philadelphia is ending a data-sharing contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement or ICE. This move was motivated by immigration rights activists who are making a nationwide push for other major cities to do the same.
For weeks demonstrators had been outside of Philadelphia City Hall protesting in a large tent village of and hanging signs demanding that ICE be blocked.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney said "If I could abolish ICE, I would," the mayor said. "But we can abolish this contract, and we are." The announcement, which came Friday, means the city will not renew the decade-old deal with ICE once it expires this fall.
If you remember Mayor Jim Kenney was caught on camera dancing back in June when Philadelphia became a sanctuary city. Don't remember? Then let the video below jog your memory.
