DoJ to ‘sanctuary’ cities: This is your final warning

“We urge jurisdictions to not only comply with Section 1373 but to establish sensible and effective partnerships to properly process criminal aliens”

(National SentinelImmigration Reformed: The Department of Justice has issued one last warning to 10 so-called “sanctuary city” jurisdictions in defiance of federal laws, telling them they have until Oct. 27 to submit evidence they are in compliance or risk losing grant money.

Onlineshoes.comAs reported by the Washington Times, letters were sent by DoJ to Cook County, Illinois,  Chicago, New Orleans, New York City, and Philadelphia that they did not appear to be in compliance yet and could stand to lose millions in federal law enforcement grants.

The money is only supposed to go to jurisdictions complying with section 1373 of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, which states that grant recipients cannot adopt laws and/or policies that restrict communications with federal immigration authorities “regarding the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual.”

Two other jurisdictions — Milwaukee County, Wisconsin and the state of Connecticut — were told Wednesday that a preliminary assessment found no evidence that their laws violated 1373, the Times said. Earlier, the department cleared Clark County, Nevada — home to Las Vegas — and Miami-Dade County, Florida.

“I commend the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office and the State of Connecticut on their commitment to complying with Section 1373, and I urge all jurisdictions found to be out of compliance in this preliminary review to reconsider their policies that undermine the safety of their residents,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions. “We urge jurisdictions to not only comply with Section 1373 but to establish sensible and effective partnerships to properly process criminal aliens.”

Believe it or not, the Obama administration first raised the specter with these jurisdictions their sanctuary policies were in violation of U.S. immigration laws, the Times said, so the Trump administration is merely following up on that effort.

However, it was not at all clear that the Obama regime would have ever followed up on ensuring compliance, considering most of those jurisdictions adopted sanctuary policies long ago and still received federal grant money.

We’re sure, however, that Sessions’ DoJ will follow through.

  1. Final warning number ??. Lets grow a set and do something already! Something that will spin their heads like there is no tomorrow. Something like arresting and jailing the mayors, governors and state legislatures. But, I’m sure you don’t have a big enough pair to do that.

  3. You mean like if they were breaking laws? If they did that they would have to recognize illegal aliens as being… wait for it… illegal? Never going to happen. At least not before American Civil War 2.0. Too many people making money off illegals; too many influential people. Draining the swamp should be priority one. Before that nothing can be fixed. After that there may not be anything else TO fix.
