Justice Department Gives "Sanctuary Cities" Final Warning on Immigrants

Justice Department Gives

News reports that Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and New Orleans have "laws, policies or practices" that violate a federal statute requiring that local governments comply with federal immigration officials in deporting suspected undocumented immigrants in local jails, according to a Justice Department news release.

Similar letters went to Chicago and Cook County where that city is located, Philadelphia and New Orleans telling them they're out of compliance.

In August, the city of Chicago sued Sessions over its efforts to stop federal money from going to sanctuary cities through Byrne Justice Assistance Grants.

The Department is, again, threatening to revoke a federal grant.

Turkey will Boycott Meetings with the US Ambassador
Erdogan said that the current trade exchange between the two countries of $800 million (682 million euros) "is not enough" and that it should rapidly grow in the near future.

The U.S. Department of Justice has put five U.S. jurisdictions on notice: end sanctuary policies by October 27. The city's lawsuit is over whether the Justice Department has the power to withhold Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants from governments that don't cooperate with immigration agents in trying to identify and possibly deport people in the USA illegally.

The United States Justice Department singled out four cities and a county on Thursday for allegedly having so-called "sanctuary policies" that may violate a federal law that says local governments can not limit information sharing with US immigration officials.

U.S. 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".

DOJ says this appears to violate the federal law's provision that local governments may not restrict the sharing of information with federal authorities about immigration or citizenship status.

China opposes United States move to send its warship in South China Sea
USA ships have repeatedly sailed past the disputed islets in the South China Sea, triggering an angry reaction from China. China immediately dispatched military vessels and tried to challenge the entry of the USA destroyer, local reports said.

Some cities say they will only honor detainers accompanied by criminal warrants, and that compliance with the requests is voluntary and not required under the statute.

The DOJ also cleared four jurisdictions of failing to comply with Section 8 U.S.C. s. 1373: Milwaukee County, WI; the state of Connecticut; Clark County, NV; and Miami-Dade County, FL.

Seth Stein, a spokesman for New York City, said the mayor's office was "prepared to fight to protect critical public safety funding".

City leaders have long maintained that fostering a good relationship between the police department and immigrant communities will help keep the city safer.
