Sessions Threatens Sanctuary Cities

I come from a long of Quaker/Friends abolitionist traditions, and may be biased, but these recent threats from Droopy Dawg look alike AJ Sessions, reminds me of another atrocity from 1850. It took a long time for an administration to come up with a similar miscarriage of justice, though FDR was a close contender with confinement of Japanese citizens of America in WWII, that could compare to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850.

Sessions says he’ll punish sanctuaries, cities could lose billions of dollars

The Trump administration officially put sanctuary cities on notice Monday that they are violating federal laws and could lose access to billions of dollars in Justice Department grants if they continue to thwart efforts to deport illegal immigrants.

And counties and cities that have taken money in the past, despite refusing to cooperate with federal agents, could have that money clawed back, Attorney General Jeff Sessions said. That would mean Chicago, Philadelphia and other prominent sanctuaries would not only lose money going forward, but might have to pay back tens of millions of dollars from their treasuries.

But Mr. Sessions didn’t say when he would actually start withholding money, making his announcement more signal than substance — and leaving Democrats to argue he was trying to change the subject from White House controversies and the failed Obamacare repeal effort on Capitol Hill.

“Countless Americans would be alive today — and countless loved ones would not be grieving today — if the policies of these sanctuary jurisdictions were ended,” Mr. Sessions said from the White House, saying the time is ripe to take action.

Mr. Sessions’ announcement was a reiteration of a policy first announced by the Obama administration last year.

California and New York, and now Seattle are all going to sue in retaliation.
Sessions doesn't want to piss off the sixth largest economy on the planet.
California may decide to stop payments into the federal fund.
