Judge sides against Trump in fight over 'sanctuary cities'

Judge sides against Trump in fight over 'sanctuary cities'”

Chicago argued that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Beauregard Sessions exceeded his authority in withholding Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants from sanctuary cities. Leinenweber considered new restrictions placed on the grants in July.

"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. Leinenweber wrote that Chicago has shown a "likelihood of success" in its arguments that Sessions overstepped his authority with the requirements.

Along with San Bernardino, other sanctuary cities in the Southland include Santa Ana and Malibu.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Mayor Rahm Emmanuel filed the lawsuit in August in response to the Department of Justice's request that cities give the DoJ at least 48 hours notice before releasing people in jail people whom the Department suspect are in the country illegally. Trump attacked them repeatedly during his presidential campaign, arguing that local leaders are allowing risky undocumented immigrants to roam free in their communities.

"These policies also encourage illegal immigration and even human trafficking by perpetuating the lie that in certain cities, illegal aliens can live outside the law", he added.

Sessions has frequently assailed Chicago's sanctuary policies and linked them to the city's high violent crime and murder rates. In April, a federal judge limited the administration's ability to withhold federal grants to local communities that refused to cooperate with immigration enforcement. Last month, Sessions accused local officials there of obstructing federal immigration laws "to a degree perhaps unsurpassed by any other jurisdiction" after the city sued over his threat to cut off the grants.
