Feds tell New Orleans it's not a sanctuary city, says mayor

Justice Department latest sanctuary city move on Chicago, Cook County

Justice Department latest sanctuary city move on Chicago, Cook County

A letter from the Justice Department released Thursday said officials believe NY is violating a law requiring cooperation on immigration enforcement - one of four cities put on notice they were out of compliance. U.S.C. 1373 - states that a federal, state or local government entity can not restrict any government entity from "sending to, or receiving from, the Immigration and Naturalization Service information regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual".

The DOJ said it was the "last chance" for jurisdictions to comply.

Similar letters went to Chicago and Cook County where that city is located, Philadelphia and New Orleans telling them they're out of compliance. Though this rule is aimed at barring questions about immigrants' legal status, DOJ says it could be interpreted to bar NYPD members from requesting immigration info from federal immigration officers, which would be illegal.

The Justice Department said it had found no evidence that four other jurisdictions - Milwaukee County, Wisconsin, Clark County, Nevada, Miami-Dade County, Florida and the State of CT - were in violation of the statue, known as Section 1373.

President Donald Trump's Justice Department this week sent letters contending Chicago and Cook County violated federal immigration laws past year when they were awarded public safety grants.

The Justice Department also found Chicago, New Orleans, New York City and Cook County, Illinois, to be in violation. 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 US illegally.

The jurisdictions have until October 27 to provide "additional evidence" that their laws and policies do not run afoul of the statute or face the possibility of losing federal law enforcement grants.

A law enforcement grant received by the city requires compliance with the law, the letter states.

Corker On Trump Lying: 'Everyone Knows He Does It'
Bob Corker is apparently still on, based on the new nickname the president bestowed upon Corker Tuesday morning. Even after Trump won, Corker was on the list of possibilities for Secretary of State.

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

Former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, long outspoken in support of hardline immigration policies, left his post in August to become a top advisor to the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action.

Several U.S. cities and counties passed local laws or enacted procedures that prohibit law enforcement from notifying Homeland Security when an undocumented immigrant is identified or arrested.
