The Act prohibits local governments from becoming sanctuary cities. The Act specifically forbids local Georgia governments from adopting any legislation or policy that would prohibit their local officials or employees from cooperating with federal law enforcement in reporting any information that is not legally confidential but otherwise might be relevant to the legal or illegal status of immigrants. Any local government violator is subject to withdrawal of funding controlled or distributed by the state, and any state-controlled governing body distributing funds may require proof of compliance.
