DOJ Sends Warnings to Jurisdictions Accused of Protecting Illegals

New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman and Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez make a plea to ICE to stop conducting raids in New York courthouses

Sessions Says Connecticut Is In Compliance With Immigration Information-Sharing Law

But the DOJ said in its reply on Wednesday that the city's policy of not informing ICE when an inmate or detainee is released from custody does violate federal law.

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. We will build relationships between the NOPD and all community members.

New Orleans and the other cities have until Oct. 27 to prove compliance, the department said Thursday (Oct. 12). "The NOPD will continue to focus on the arrest and conviction of violent criminals, regardless of their immigration status".

A Justice Department review of New York City's laws and policies found at least four provisions appear to violate federal immigration laws, according to an October 11 letter obtained by The Post.

The section Sessions references, Section 1373, is a federal statute barring local and state governments from limiting communication regarding residents' immigration or citizenship status with federal officials. The rules would require recipients to cooperate with immigration agents. "Pursuant to standard training procedures, all officers and employees were notified about the policy in September 2016".

"Chicago will not be blackmailed into changing our values, and we are and will remain a welcoming city", Mayor Rahm Emanuel said at a press conference announcing that suit. Landrieu and NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison also have argued that targeting people through immigration status makes vulnerable communities less likely to report crimes and work with law enforcement.

"This letter is to inform you that, based on a preliminary review, the Department has determined that your jurisdiction appears to have laws, policies, or practices that violate" that section of law, Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan Hanson wrote to Mayor's Office of Criminal Justice director Elizabeth Glazer.

Connecticut's friendly stance toward undocumented immigrants has placed it under increased scrutiny during the Trump administration, which has pledged to take a more hard-line stance on illegal immigration.

The exchange between Landrieu and Sessions' Justice Department is hardly the first contentious battle over the NOPD's policies on immigration.

Neighbours have been bothered by it, too: "All day, non-stop, there's people up and down this road. They park in front of our driveway and block us in", a neighbor said.

"Unfortunately, the mayor has ignored my many warnings and continued to risk the safety, security and funding of our state's citizens", Landry said. Sessions has said that federal grant money would be withheld from sanctuary jurisdictions. The pair have threatened to cut off federal funding to the cities - which include Hartford and New Haven - but so far that hasn't happened. The assessment is its latest effort to force "sanctuary cities" to comply with federal immigration orders. Several agencies and local governments in California had sued over the order.
