LOOKS LIKE SANCTUARY CITY'S SPANKED TRAMP & SESSON'S REARS AGAIN!!

 

Jeff Sessions Gives In and Sends Federal Funds to Sanctuary Cities


The announcement came five days after the Justice Department sent warning letters to 29 jurisdictions.

 

For the first time since September, when a federal judge curtailed the Department of Justice’s power to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities, Attorney General Jeff Sessions awarded grants on Monday to 36 jurisdictions the agency says are noncompliant with federal immigration authorities. The grants are part of a nearly $1 billion initiative through the Department’s Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) office to hire more than 800 new full-time police officers in 179 departments.

 

In his statement about the grants, Sessions conceded that only “80 percent of this year’s COPS Hiring Program grantees have agreed to cooperate with federal immigration authorities in their detention facilities.” He commended these recipients for their “commitment to ending…violent crime stemming from illegal immigration.” The remaining 20 percent of recipients did not commit to this kind of cooperation.

 

The funding announcement is a departure from Sessions’ longstanding battle against sanctuary cities. It comes five days after the DOJ sent letters to 29 jurisdictions it has preliminarily deemed non-compliant with federal immigration policy, giving them until December 8 to prove compliance. There’s some overlap between those 29 jurisdictions and the 36 sanctuary jurisdictions that got funding Monday, many of which are in California, including Sacramento.

 

One notable recipient of Monday’s COPS grants is Chicago, which launched the lawsuit against Sessions that resulted in September’s preliminary injunction. The city will receive $3,125,000 to add 25 officers who will specialize in gun violence to its 12,000-strong force.

I don't understand the moral principle that people who break the law are due favors. 

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump’s attempt to withhold funding from so-called sanctuary cities, a welcome ruling to municipalities across Southern California that have enacted legislation or taken stands limiting cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities.

 

U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling that the president has no authority to attach new conditions to federal spending in response to lawsuits against Trump’s executive order targeting sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuits brought by the city of San Francisco and Santa Clara County work their way through court.

 

“Federal funding that bears no meaningful relationship to immigration enforcement cannot be threatened merely because a jurisdiction chooses an immigration enforcement strategy of which the president disapproves,” Orrick said.

 

Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis said Orrick’s decision makes clear that critical federal funds that support public safety, health and social services cannot be cut for political purposes.

That's fine, but it only reflects how negligent Congress has been to clarify immigration laws.  Both Dems and GOP want it to be messed up.
