Baltimore will begin to use public funds for legal defense of illegal immigrants facing deportation, Democratic Mayor Catherine Pugh announced Wednesday.

A city spending panel approved $200,000 to pay for attorneys to represent illegal immigrants living in Baltimore who federal immigration authorities have detained, The Baltimore Sun reported.

Money - Vera - Institute - Justice - Grant

Half the money will come through a Vera Institute of Justice grant, a New York nonprofit, and the other half will come from the city’s budget.

The combined funding is expected to support immigration appeals for about 40 people.

Pugh - Initiative - Way - Baltimore - Residents

Pugh described the initiative as a way to help ensure detained Baltimore residents have legal representation, regardless of their immigration status.

Baltimore was the deadliest city in the nation on a per capita basis in 2017 and had more homicides than several larger cities — including Los Angeles, Dallas and New York City.
