Wednesday night in Arizona, Donald Trump proposed his 10-point immigration plan. As part of that, he criticized sanctuary cities, saying, "We will end the sanctuary cities that have resulted in so many needless deaths."

Sanctuary cities are those that have enacted policies that generally protect immigrants who are here illegally from being prosecuted solely based on their immigration status.

He went on to say that, "Cities that refuse to cooperate with federal authorities will not receive taxpayer dollars."

Massachusetts has a handful of these cities. We talk to a couple of the mayors of those cities about what they think of Trump's remarks.
