NYC, Philadelphia Mayors to Defy DOJ Orders on ‘Sanctuary City’ Deadline

by Fox News  |  Published on October 30, 2017

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) and Philadelphia Mayor James Kenney (D) are planning to ignore a Sunday deadline to provide critical information to ICE on their sanctuary city status.

The Justice Department is demanding those cities prove that they are not impeding federal immigration investigations, James Rosen reported.

ICE said their enforcement posture is endangering their citizens.

Philadelphia City Solicitor Sozi Pedro Tulante wrote a letter to the DOJ claiming the city doesn’t keep police from questioning immigration statuses, according to NBC News.

The city is suing Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his plans to combat sanctuary city policies by withholding federal funds, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
