Do Sanctuary Cities Actually Provide Sanctuary

U.S. District Judge Harry Leinenweber granted a request by the Windy City to put a "nationwide" injunction on Sessions' decision, meaning he can not deny the funds until after the legal process is finished.

U.S. District Judge Harry D. Leinenweber ruled that the Justice Department cannot not impose the requirements.

Trump applauds senators' latest ObamaCare repeal effort Get ready for socialized medicine, if Republicans don't fix ObamaCare MORE (D-Mass.) on Friday praised a federal judge that ruled against the Trump administration's rules requiring so-called sanctuary cities to help enforce federal immigration laws in order to receive funding, calling it "good news". Leinenweber wrote that Chicago has shown a "likelihood of success" in its arguments that Sessions overstepped his authority with the requirements.

In April, a U.S. federal judge blocked also Trump's executive order that sought to withhold federal funds from so-called sanctuary cities for immigrants.

The move was a significant escalation in the Trump administration's approach to sanctuary jurisdictions, which typically refuse to honor federal requests to detain immigrants in jails past their scheduled release dates unless the requests are accompanied by a judicial warrant. Earlier this month, Trump announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, a lifeline for around 800,000 young undocumented people living in the United States.

President Trump later announced he was working on an agreement to protect them.

"The court finds that the city has established that it would suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not entered", Leinenweber added, according to Bloomberg.

While addressing police personnel in Anantnag , he said, "You are working in extremely challenging conditions here". Reports said the residential house in which the militant was trapped was damaged during the gunfight.

The federal government provides this money through the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant, which aims to reduce gun violence, equip officers with body cameras, improve mental health services, and reduce unnecessary incarceration.

Friday's decision marked the second time this year a federal judge has blocked the Trump administration's efforts to force sanctuary cities to cooperate on immigration enforcement.

Let's be clear what the city of Chicago and other sanctuary cities are fighting so hard for.

However, Leinenweber ruled against Chicago insofar as it objected to being required to certify its compliance with a federal law that prohibits local law enforcement from restricting the sharing of information about the citizenship status of an individual.

"Once such trust is lost, it can not be repaired through an award of money damages, making it the type of harm that is especially hard to rectify", Leinenweber wrote.

A spokesman for the Department of Justice disagreed.

San Francisco, Los Angeles and the state of California also sued the federal government over the threat of losing Byrne grants.
