Sessions Gives Sanctuary Cities a Final Warning

Jeff Sessions gives ‘last chance’ warning to so-called ‘sanctuary cities

The U.S. Justice Department has informed New Orleans leaders that the city is in full compliance with federal immigration laws.

The Justice Department has threatened to cut off federal funding to boost law enforcement in cities that do not comply with the Department of Homeland Security's efforts to identify and deport undocumented immigrants.

In a letter dated Wednesday, Hanson noted that the city's 2016 Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant - commonly known as JAG funding - required Philly to comply with the statute.

The NOPD policy in question, which is governed by the city's federal consent decree, states that officers "shall not make inquiries into an individual's immigration status" except in certain circumstances.

Sanctuary cities can be denied federal dollars under President Trump's January 25 executive order created to crack down on localities that protect undocumented immigrants from federal immigration authorities.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said in a statement that the cities still in the department's crosshairs "adopt the view that the protection of criminal aliens is more important than the protection of law-abiding citizens and of the rule of law".

New Orleans is one of several jurisdictions that will have to prove to President Donald Trum... It cleared Madison, Wisconsin and the state of CT of any sanctuary city wrongdoing, joining Clark County, Nevada and Miami-Dade County, Florida, which had been previously exonerated.

A month later, Philadelphia sent the DOJ a letter saying that none of its sanctuary policies violate federal law.

Spokesmen for CPD, Cook County and the mayor did not immediately respond to requests for comment Thursday morning.

The cities of New York, Philadelphia and New Orleans are also out of compliance with federal law, according to the DOJ.

Officials in New Orleans insisted Tuesday they will not bend in the face of threats from Pre... "Under my Administration, the New Orleans Police Department has and will continue to follow all federal laws; however, the NOPD will not be the federal government's deportation force". In the letter, the department did not specify what would happen if the city failed to do so. Additionally, the Justice Department said subsequent investigations found Miami-Dade County, Fla., and Clark County, Nev., where Las Vegas is located, were already in accordance with federal immigration law, though previously they had been listed otherwise. The law cited by the feds in the 2016 report, the Connecticut Trust Act, stipulates the conditions when law enforcement should detain someone for violating federal immigration law but does not prohibit the sharing of any information with Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Proponents have argued that enlisting street-level police to enforce national immigration policy makes it harder for them to investigate and stop crimes, because undocumented immigrants won't cooperate if they think they will be deported.

At an event in August, Landrieu hit back at claims from the federal acting ICE director that some cities were releasing "serious criminal offenders".
