Attorney General Sessions Speaks Out Against 'Sanctuary Cities'

28 Марта, 2017, 00:47 | Author: Celia Hoffman

Attorney General Jeff Sessions made a surprise appearance at today's White House press briefing, slamming cities that are working to actively ignore the federal law to turn over people who are living in the country illegally.

ABC noted that the Obama administration also said cities that don't honor detainer laws could lose federal funds.

After years of violating federal law, the attorney general said communities not working with federal authorities to ensure illegal immigrants detained by law enforcement are deported will suffer consequences.

The Department of Justice, he continued, will require that cities and states seeking DOJ grants must provide proof of compliance with Section 1373 of USA code Title 8 on notifying federal officials about a person's immigration status.

Several big cities, including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, as well as dozens and possibly hundreds of smaller counties, cities and towns, also refuse to notify ICE, which can then come and take custody of the illegal immigrant, possibly for deportation. So-called sanctuary cities, which refuse to do so, have recently garnered widespread attention and pushback from some federal officials - mostly notably President Donald Trump, who threatened to strip federal funding from sanctuary cities like Philadelphia in an executive order issued earlier this year.

"Such policies can not continue", he said.

"The governor is opposed to that, I'm glad to hear", Sessions said.

Schneiderman has been forceful in saying his office will defend the state against actions by the federal government, saying cities have a right to follow their own policies and shouldn't be at risk of losing federal aid.

Travis County receives just over $50 million from both federal and state grants, according to estimates from Eckhardt's office.

It would bar the use of local or state resources to assist in enforcement of federal immigration law.

It ranked the top municipalities that received detainer requests: First was Clark County, Nev., and second was Nassau County on Long Island, with 38 requests.

Sessions' statement drew swift pushback from NY state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, who said his office would continue helping local governments "have the tools they need to protect their immigrant communities".

We have simply got to end this policy.
