I-Team: Sheriff: Federal error cleared up: Vegas not sanctuary city, won’t lose millions in grants


An implied threat by federal agencies to withhold millions of dollars in grants from local governments has been lifted, said Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo to the I-Team.

The issue first surfaced weeks ago when the attorney general and Department of Homeland Security accused Metro Police and Clark County of being uncooperative in efforts to detain criminal suspects who are undocumented immigrants.

Sheriff Lombardo said the whole issue was caused by a clerical error.

The I-Team’s George Knapp has the story.
