The city of Chicago is bringing some serious legal firepower to its lawsuit against Attorney General Jeff Sessions and his new policy of withholding Justice Department funding to places that don't cooperate with federal immigration authorities.
"It is a false choice, and a wrong choice", Mr. Emanuel said.
"The City of Chicago will continue to stand up to President Trump and his Justice Department to ensure that their misguided policies do not threaten the safety of our residents". The conditions also require cities to give federal immigration officials unrestricted access to detention facilities to interrogate suspected noncitizens, "effectively federalizing all of the city's detention facilities", the suit says. Administration officials say the policies undermine efforts to root out and deport violent criminals who are in the country illegally, while the cities say the close cooperation federal authorities demand undermines public trust and forces them to violate the rights of their residents.
Mr. Emanuel said the Trump administration was asking Chicago "to choose between our core values as a welcoming city and our fundamental principles of community policing".

Remember Lord's, remember Dharamsala against Australia, those are very important innings, the 90 against England in Mohali. India's commendable innings and 53-run win in the second Test was made easier by winning the toss and opting to bat first.
In that case, even the Justice Department's lawyers acknowledged in court that the department's ability to withhold federal funding from states and local governments is limited to a small number of grants. On June 1, a task force was formed by the Chicago police, IL state police and the ATF to combat the gun violence in the city.
Siskel said the city will follow the initial complaint with a motion for a preliminary injunction to halt the government's imposition of the new conditions. The New York Times published a piece indicating that the executive branch does not have the power to cut funding from cities to enforce federal laws. Spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement, "It's especially tragic that the mayor is less concerned with that staggering figure than he is spending time and taxpayer money protecting criminal aliens and putting Chicago's law enforcement at greater risk". The grant in question would provide the city with $3.2 million, money it mostly uses for purchasing police vehicles, radios and computers.
"CPD is here for you regardless of who you are or where you're from", Johnson said.
One 2015 study from the American Immigration Council found that while the foreign-born population of the United States grew from 7.9% to 13.1% between 1990 and 2013, the violent crime rate declined 48%. But Emanuel said the equipment it buys is "needed" and called the effort to pull those grants "the camel's nose under the tent".
A 161-page report by the Department of Justice released January 13 concluded that the department must embrace community policing as "a core philosophy" in order to end officers' routine violations of the civil rights of residents by using excessive force caused by poor training and nonexistent supervision.
