Chicago sues Trump administration

Donald Trump

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced that he will file a lawsuit against the Department of Justice following threats to prevent federal grants from the city for non-compliance with its new immigration policy. The mayor also argued that the Trump administration's actions are "unlawful and unconstitutional".

The dispute over sanctuary cities, where the local authorities limit their cooperation with federal immigration officials, pits two visions of public safety against each other. "We can not be forced to violate our residents' constitutional rights". "It may not concoct ... sweeping new policy conditions that were never approved by Congress and that would federalize local jails and police stations".

According to The Guardian, Emanuel went on to say that, if Trump's funding restrictions succeed, it could be used as precedent to set conditions on other federal grants and ultimately exercise control over individual states and cities - something that, if true, would directly contradict Article 1 of the Constitution, which is concerned with the separation of Federal and State powers.

That could force the Police Department to hold men and women under investigation longer than the constitutionally mandated 48 hours, Siskel said.

Siskel said the city will follow the initial complaint with a motion for a preliminary injunction to halt the government's imposition of the new conditions.

In 2016, Chicago got $2.3 million through the grant, which was expanded by the Obama Administration to allow cities to purchase body cameras after a series of fatal encounters between police officers and unarmed civilians.

Chicago, a regular target of criticism from Donald Trump because of its murder rate, expected to receive $3.2m this year that it planned to devote mostly to police vehicles.

On Monday, the city is filing suit against the Department of Justice, which announced it would withhold millions of dollars in police grant money from so-called sanctuary cities.

The DOJ did not immediately comment on Sunday.

Chicago received over $2 million in such grants previous year, which have been used for buying police vehicles.

Rabada rocks England with late strike
We'll be keeping a close eye on his (Hameed's) championship game (against Hampshire) on Sunday and we want him to make runs. He might have departed first ball, as he whooshed into a nervy and hard-handed drive to an exocet from Rabada outside off.

"We need people to work with our officers and trust our officers", Emanuel said.

Because of a clause in the Administration's policy that requires that immigrants be deported for even the slightest, "immaterial mistake" on their paperwork, the First Lady technically could be deported.

Sanctuary cities generally provide safe harbor to illegal immigrants by declining to use city resources to enforce federal immigration laws. Cook County, which also prohibits the Sheriff's Department from cooperating with immigration officers, is considering its "legal options going forward", Preckwinkle said.

"If you let it stand, then it actually begins to not be challenged and this is one of many things that the Trump administration has been very clear that they've narrowed the focus, but this is the camel's nose under the tent", said Mayor Emanuel.
