    "In a surprise move on Thursday, the Obama Justice Department adopted new policies that will deny federal law enforcement grants to some “sanctuary cities.”

    "According to guidance issued by the DOJ’s Office of Justice Programs, cities that refuse to honor Section 1373 of the United States Code will no longer be eligible for the Edward Byrne Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) and the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAP) grants.


    More than $3.4 billion in funding has been given to states and cities in the past five years, Texas Rep. John Culberson said in a statement announcing the Justice Department’s updated guidance...

    Despite the change, the Obama administration is not likely to cut off other funding to sanctuary cities.

    The White House is actively opposing another the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act, a Republican-backed bill which would cut federal economic development and community block grants to sanctuary jurisdictions."

    Sounds like a carrott on a stick - why wasnt this done 5 years ago?

    Oh, by the way, is anyone aware that in 90 days, there is a presidential election?

    Because this administration panders to the open borders crowd? Correction, this admin is part of the open borders crowd.
