    Default Justice Department Gives ‘Sanctuary Cities’ Final Warning on Immigrants

    The Department of Justice (DOJ) sternly warned a group of major cities Thursday that they remain in violation of federal law by adopting so-called “sanctuary city” policies that shield undocumented immigrants from being reported to the feds. Cities on the attorney general’s warning list include New York, Philadelphia and New Orleans, as well as Chicago and surrounding Cook County, in Illinois. Big-city mayors, including New York’s Bill de Blasio and Chicago’s Rahm Emanuel, have openly defied federal instructions to turn in undocumented immigrants.

    The Justice Department says the cities are specifically violating the federal statute called 8 U.S.C. 1373. That law says local governments “may not prohibit, or in any way restrict” the delivery of information about “the citizenship or immigration status, lawful or unlawful, of any individual” to federal immigration authorities.
    Federal and local officials have battled over sanctuary city protections as a matter of not only law but also finance: The Trump administration has threatened to deny uncooperative cities funding from Washington if they don’t comply.

    The DOJ gave the sanctuary cities until October 27 to prove they’re complying with federal law.

    or what?

    Withhold funding?
    The obvious retort by States would be to withhold federal tax revenue.
    What then?

    As far as can tell, these federal agencies seem to be the most offensive from a moral standpoint.

    Reminds me of how the left complains about abuse of authority and corruption to...............

    wait for it................


    A HIGHER AND EVEN MORE POWERFUL, ABUSIVE AND CORRUPT AUTHORITY!!!!

    The petty levels of 'nastiness' (before any spilled blood) could reach unbelievable depths.

    Don't forget the "Northern Ireland" type fight about the red counties.

    Yeah, that's what I'm hoping for, just so this stupid drama over illegals continues.

    We're going to find out real soon where cities and states will draw the line for illegals.
    They fought the Wars
    They lost.
    They turned friends
    into enemies.
    Who became
    friends of our enemies.
    They stood alone, in splendid isolation,
    And said it was their only choice.
