Gov. Phil Bryant signed a law Monday banning sanctuary cities and other policies that might help people who have entered the country illegally, saying he wants Mississippi to help federal agencies arrest people without legal status.

Bryant, a longtime critic of illegal entry by immigrants, cited President Donald Trump’s executive order banning sanctuary cities when he signed the law. Since Trump’s order, some states added protections for immigrants while others moved to limit such communities.
