Do Sanctuary Cities Actually Provide Sanctuary
17 September, 2017, 00:57
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.
As part of that policy, the Justice Department has sought to punish cities and other local jurisdictions that have joined a growing "sanctuary" movement aimed at shielding illegal immigrants from stepped-up deportation efforts.
A federal judge has just ruled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions can not withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities. The matter has been a subject of constant legal challenges and wrangling ever since; in April, a federal judge in San Francisco similarly ruled against the administration, as did a federal judge in Texas just last month.
The announcement came just days after a nationwide conversation about Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the USA illegally as children.
"The court finds that the city has established that it would suffer irreparable harm if a preliminary injunction is not entered", Leinenweber said in his ruling.

Sessions called Chicago's August 7 lawsuit "astounding", saying the city has gone through an unprecedented violent crime surge, "with the number of murders in 2016 surpassing both NY and Los Angeles combined". Here, we follow binding Supreme Court precedent and the persuasive authority of the Second Circuit, neither of which elevates federalism to the degree urged by the City here. Cautioning that the Justice Department's approach could cause "irreparable harm", he also pointed to concerns over mistrust between the public and law enforcement.
A Justice Department spokesman, Devin O'Malley, declined comment when asked whether the administration would appeal the court order.
