Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey is urging immediate action be taken against Philadelphia and other sanctuary cities for not cooperating with federal immigration authorities. Toomey named recent Philadelphia criminals allegedly entering the country illegally but the city refused to alert Immigration and Customs agents.
