Renewing "Racist Assault on Immigrant Communities," Trump's DOJ Threatens 23 Sanctuary Jurisdictions

Trump’s Department of Justice continued its harassment of so-called “sanctuary” jurisdictions on Wednesday, as it ordered 23 such states, counties, and cities to submit documents that prove compliance with federal immigration authorities.

Failure to adequately comply, the DOJ warned, means the jurisdiction risks a subpoena for the documents or possibly having to return federal grant money.
Among those receiving the letters was New York City. Responding to the demand, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted, “I will NOT be attending today’s meeting at the White House after @realDonaldTrump’s Department of Justice decided to renew their racist assault on our immigrant communities. It doesn’t make us safer and it violates America’s core values.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, for his part, said in a statement, “Protecting criminal aliens from federal immigration authorities defies common sense and undermines the rule of law. We have seen too many examples of the threat to public safety represented by jurisdictions that actively thwart the federal government’s immigration enforcement—enough is enough.”
Those receiving the letters had previously been contacted by Trump’s DOJ about their compliance with sharing with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) information about undocumented people they arrested.
