DOJ: Philly's sanctuary city policies violate federal law

Jeff Sessions gives ‘last chance’ warning to so-called ‘sanctuary cities

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has maintained CT is in compliance with all federal immigration law, but he has reminded state and local police that they have no obligation to act as enforcers of immigration law, which is a federal matter.

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.

The Trump administration and other critics advocating an immigration crackdown - including Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry - have railed against so-called sanctuary cities, contending the policies make it harder for federal authorities to deport potentially risky criminals in the country illegally. In May, Sessions threatened that non-compliant cities could see grants withheld or "clawed back", or be barred from receiving grants in the future.

President Donald Trump, of course, has made immigration crackdowns - from deportations to increased border patrols to travel restrictions - a signature part of his first months in office after campaigning heavily on the issue previous year.

But leaders in cities that have under fire from the Trump administration have argued that turning police into immigration officers destroys trust between police and immigrant communities, making it less likely for people to report crimes or come forward with evidence.

The U.S. Department of Justice, in separate letters to Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson and Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle penned Wednesday, highlights several active policies created to shield undocumented immigrants from being unduly targeted by law enforcement entities. Additionally, the Justice Department said subsequent investigations found Miami-Dade County, Fla., and Clark County, Nev., where Las Vegas is located, were already in accordance with federal immigration law, though previously they had been listed otherwise.

The Landrieu administration didn't immediately respond to a request for comment Thursday morning.

Philadelphia is one of seven jurisdictions that were asked to certify their compliance with the law earlier this year. Milwaukee and CT were both deemed to be in compliance. Perhaps ironically, another major Trump supporter, Republican former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, memorably offered a dramatic defense of policies that shielded immigrants from persecution while running City Hall in the 1990s.

In addition, Philadelphia is suing over other new requirements for policing grants that Sessions imposed on cities in July, aimed at punishing sanctuary cities.

Chicago and Cook County have until October 27 to submit a response before the DOJ makes its final determination. In the letter, the department did not specify what would happen if the city failed to do so.
